Alignment Specs Help?

I Just replaced my upper and lower ball joints with moog problem solvers, after the job i went and got an alignment done at the local shop. My truck seems like it pulls to the right now and i feel some play in the wheel? I'm thinking i should take it back and make sure they did the alignment right General Grabbers are still fairly new, don't think it's the tires.

Play in the wheel could be a million things if the ball joints were bad may need tie rod ends as well. Caster which is the only thing in red is front to back orientation of the wheel in the well since its the same on both sides it shouldn't pull but caster and camber are static meaning you have to do a caster sweep after adjustments are made to see if it is corrected if not you can get a false green indication. Also could be since the ball joints were bad the tires may have cupped a bit causing the pull. Id check for tie rod slop then get a rotation and balance and see how that feels if its still off have them recheck most shops do a 90 day warranty on alignments so it should be a free recheck at least thats how the shop i worked for did it.

Did they give you another printout? Most times they won't touch caster unless you have a reported problem like the pull you describe. I would demand that they set it all in the green and then check it again if you still have the pull id rotate tires and let them wear back to normal. Also did you check for wheel bearing play? i forgot to ask about that earlier.
