It may be hard to believe, but “The Sandlot” is now 20 years old, after releasing in April 1993. To celebrate, the writer/director David M. Evans has organized a ballpark tour with some of the movie’s cast.
The tour began in April in New Jersey and is slowly making its way around the country, before ending September 21 in Georgia. One of it’s more notable stops will be September 1, when they go to Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.
Perhaps the most important date on the tour, which includes a fan meet and greet along with screenings of the movie, happened July 20 in Glendale, Utah. Evans was joined by Patrick Renna (Hamilton “Ham” Porter), Chauncey Leopardi (Michael “Squints” Palledorous) and Shane Obedzinski (Tommy “Repeat” Timmons) in the original “Sandlot” filming location for a celebration.
No “Smalls” or Benny “The Jet” Rodriguez for this gathering, but fans of the movie didn’t mind. Renna even recreated his famous Great Gambino point from the movie.
