    The Red Sox musical Johnny Baseball is now running on the Nikos Stage at the Williamstown Theatre Festival.

Johnny Baseball brings to life the "Curse of the Bambino" through the stories of three orphaned souls -- hard-luck 1919 Red Sox right-hander Johnny O'Brien; his idol, Babe Ruth, and Daisy Wyatt, a dazzling African-American blues singer. Their intertwining fates reveal the source of the curse and the secret to its triumphant end in 2004, while also examining social and racial undertones that have impacted the team throughout its history.

Willie Reale wrote the lyrics and conceived the story of Johnny Baseball with playwright Richard Dresser.

It is finally here; tonight marks the start of the 2012 Major League Baseball season, otherwise known as opening day.

We’re talking baseball today and we want your take on the upcoming season. Will the New York Yankess re-take the crown and continue their overall winning record? Can the Boston Red Sox pull another coup and take the American League East pennant? Will the New York Mets’ wins add up to double digits?
