Depending on make model and type of play. Very often, there are bushings in the linkages shifter to transmission. You will probably need the car in the air, or jacked high enough to get under it. Dealer part, or may be found at some hardware stores.

The nylon bushing at the bottom of the shifter is worn out. remove console. put shifter in the neutral position, unbolt shifter from transmission. replace bushing, then reinstall. good luck...

A 2003 Ford F-250 column gear shifter can be fixed by simply tightening it again. You can tighten it by turning the adjustment wheel on the lower right side of the steering column.
