Batter up at The Sofia, where on deck for the midtown venue’s main stage is “Love & Baseball.” The B Street Theatre production, adapted by Jerry Montoya, launches Sept. 28 and runs through Nov. 6.

“A chance meeting sparks love between Will Reyes and Michele Wyatt, but due to poor timing and the reality of life, they strike out twice,” is how B Street teases the play. “If fate gives them another shot at the plate, will they hit or miss? Like the pristine moments of an unforgettable baseball game, love is also a sport of luck, skill, and timing. ‘Love & Baseball’ speaks to the force of love, the power of connection, and the admiration of a sport played like an art form.”

Brittni Barger and Peter Story star; Imani Mitchell directs. Tickets top off at $37 general; for a complete list of showtimes and price breakdowns, visit this B Street webpage.

The professional theater troupe’s family series continues Oct. 8–29 with “A Year With Frog and Toad.” Tickets are $19–$24, and the show is described thus: “Follow two best friends, the cheerful Frog and the grumpy Toad, as they hop, sing, and dance their way through a year of adventure. As the seasons change from spring to fall, these beloved characters learn lessons about life and the importance of friendship.”

The music series’ next gig is at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 6, when Michael Doucet and Tom Rigney (“two of the finest roots music fiddle players on the planet”) perform. With a mixture of Cajun and blues, the band “cooks up a storm, the grooves are guaranteed to get you up off the couch, and Doucet and Rigney tear it up in a spontaneous, virtuosic, deeply musical, and completely irresistible way.” Tickets are $40–$50.
