Fox Pitches ‘Sandlot’ Blu-ray March 2627 Feb, 2013 By: Ashley Ratcliff
Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment commemorates the 20th anniversary of baseball comedy The Sandlot by re-releasing the film March 26 as a Blu-ray Disc/DVD combo pack.
The film centers on newbie Scotty Smalls (Tom Guiry) and the summer of adventure spent playing baseball with the neighborhood boys (Mike Vitar, Patrick Renna, Chauncey Leopardi, Marty York and Brandon Adams) while fending off the mythical Beast next door.
The Sandlot also stars James Earl Jones, Denis Leary, Karen Allen and Marley Shelton.
The Sandlot: 20th Anniversary combo pack includes 10 collectible cast baseball cards, and bonus material includes a featurette and a series of TV spots.
In connection with the March 26 release, Fox is partnering with Benny “The Jet's” (Vita) favorite shoe brand, PF Flyers, to offer a limited run of “The Secret Weapon” sneaker. The shoe will come in a vintage 1960’s box, along with a $3 Sandlot coupon inside. The BD combo will also include a 10% PF Flyer discount coupon.
Additionally, director, writer and narrator David Mickey Evans will be present at a series of screenings of the 1993 film at ballparks across the country.
