As a child, one of my all time favorite movies was The Sandlot and when Chucky was old enough, I started watching it with him. And now he loves it! The Sandlot is a classic movie that a lot of people young and old alike watch and love. I'm so happy that they are releasing a Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack to celebrate the 20th anniversary of The Sandlot!
I also wanted to let the locals know that Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment is partnering with PF Flyers, the Salt Lake Bees and the Utah Film Commission for some special events to celebrate this Friday and Saturday!
