THE SANDLOT - 20 Years Later

I was able to attend the 20th anniversary celebrations of the Sandlot at both the Spring Mobile Ball Park and the original sandlot here in Utah this weekend.

They cast signed autographs,
posed for photos,

and showed the movie on the fields.
 A special plaque was presented to the crew dedicated to the site.

On Saturday, the director proposed to his girlfriend. The director's friend handed me a camera and asked me to follow him and take lots of photos of the proposal. It was super sweet.
(If you look closely, you can see me in the background being the unofficial official proposal photographer.)
Here are some more photos of the fun:

 Director David M. Evans
*notice the hideous hat
Producer Cathleen Summers
 The Chief
 Tommy "Repeat" Timmons
 Timmy Timmons
 Hamilton "Ham" Porter
 Michael "Squints" Palledorous
Alan "Yeah-Yeah" McClennan
 Ham said it was too hot and was ready to hit the pool to check out the chicks. No Wendy Peffercorn in sight. Too bad they were banned forever from the pool that day...

To end the night, we stopped by Vincent Drug. Anyone remember how much the kids paid for their baseball?
