A veteran Little League coach thinks winning is the point, not fun and games. His new assistant, the dad of one of the team's less gifted players, insists that it's not whether you win or lose, but whether you have a good time playing. That's the setup for "Rounding Third," which writer Richard Dresser based on some of his own experiences coaching kids' baseball. With it, Dresser continues his batting streak at Laguna Playhouse, which has produced three of his comedies -- "Gun-Shy" and "Wonderful World" were the others -- in just over 2 1/2 years.
