Wilmington, DE -- There are many baseball movies which have earned the distinction of classic. One such film is celebrating its silver anniversary in 2018. On Friday, July 27, the Wilmington Blue Rocks are honoring that movie with The Sandlot 25th Anniversary Night at Frawley Stadium. The evening will be highlighted by a special celebrity appearance from Chauncey Leopardi, better known to most fans as Michael "Squints" Palledorous.
Leopardi will hold a meet-and-greet plus sign autographs prior to first pitch and during the game. There will also be The Sandlot-themed music, videos and entertainment as part of the celebration, while fans in attendance will have a chance to win copies of The Sandlot 25th Anniversary on DVD and Blue Ray.
