Make plans to bring the family to the Friday, July 5 game and stick around afterwards for a very special showing of the classic baseball film 'The Sandlot' on the Fifth Third Field video boards. Writer/director David Mickey Evans will host the screening. If you don't come, you'll regret it FOR-EV-ER.
The film will begin after the postgame fireworks display. Save room for Fifth Third Field popcorn, candy, and hot dogs!
20th Anniversary of "The Sandlot"
The Toledo Mud Hens and Twentieth Century Fox are celebrating the 20th anniversary of "The Sandlot" and the debut of a Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack. "A charming and whimsical comedy about boys and baseball and a great big dog" ("Siskel & Ebert"), THE SANDLOT ranked in the Top 40 as one of the best sports movies ever.
With memorable performances from nine terrific young actors and supporting appearances from Honorary Academy Award® winner James Earl Jones (Field of Dreams, Star Wars Franchise), Denis Leary ("Rescue Me", The Ref) and Karen Allen (Raiders of the Lost Ark, Starman), THE SANDLOT 20th Anniversary Blu-ray and DVD Combo Pack includes limited edition packaging and 10 collectible cast baseball cards.
In connection with the release, FHE will embark on a partnership with Benny the Jet's favorite shoe brand PF Flyers, for a special one-of-a-kind promotion. Beginning March 26, a limited run of "The Secret Weapon," will be made available inside a vintage 1960's shoe box, along with a $3 SANDLOT coupon inside. Additionally, all Blu-ray and DVD combo packs will feature a 10% PF Flyer discount coupon inside the packaging. Further information on this exclusive purchase can be found at www.pfflyers.com.
