Crazy Ball Player is crazy long at 178 pages. For a comedy, you'll have to get it under 115 pages to get any serious traction. Your page margins appear to cheat at the top and bottom, so I'm guessing that 178 is closer to 190 using industry standard margins. Yikes.

Start chiseling away at the action descriptions (3-4 lines max), and say the dialogue lines out loud to get a feel for what it would sound like. The dialogue I read on the first couple pages was very stiff and unrealistic, and paging through the script I saw pages and pages of huge chunks of dialogue that I would go mad reading.

I suggest you read some scripts posted under the Black List or Award Season forum links posted here to get a better feel for what you need to do on a rewrite.

Good luck.
