Nicky Rogan is a successful playwright. With his newest play ready to open, all of his friends and supporters are confident this will be his greatest ever. But Rogan has his doubts. One of his fellow playwrights had his latest effort panned in the newspaper by local critic Steven Schwimmer. Unable to bear watching his own play, Rogan heads to a nearby bar. It's the night of Game Six of the 1986 World Series between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Mets. A lifelong Red Sox fan, Rogan watches the game with a female cab driver he just met and several other patrons in the bar. Everyone is anticipating the Red Sox first world championship in decades. But Rogan has had his heart broken numerous times by his team, and he waits for the Sox to blow it. Rogan bears witness to one of the greatest tragedies in Boston Red Sox history. Consumed with rage, he decides there is only one course of action left to him.
