7th Inning Stretch: From the Dugout
Tickets are now on sale for the virtual 7th Inning Stretch: From the Dugout!
Get ready to enjoy the Stretch right from your own home in MST's first ever virtual event! We've brought in celebrity guests alongside a variety of local artists to change up your at-home viewing routine.
At a time when baseball stadiums (and theaters) are empty, we hope you enjoy our virtual ode to America’s favorite pastime; born right here in Hoboken!
Now in its 17th year, The 7th Inning Stretch is a Hoboken tradition. Every year, we commission 7 new 10-minute plays about baseball. While baseball is the setting for each piece, the plays are always about so much more. At a time when baseball stadiums (and theaters) are empty, we hope you enjoy our virtual ode to America’s favorite pastime; born right here in Hoboken!
Since we’re coming at you virtually “from the dugout,” we’ve changed up the style of the show with a roster of new work and celebrity guests. Instead of 7 10-minute plays, the Stretch will consist of a variety of sketches, short plays, musical acts and more! Grab a giant pretzel or some Crackerjacks and get into the baseball spirit with us for the first ever virtual 7th Inning Stretch.
