Cincinnati celebrates the 30th anniversary of the movie “The Sandlot” with a free outdoor showing on August 17th. Meet members of the cast at Moerlein Lager House before the film as they take over the bar as guest bartenders from 6-8 p.m., movie at 8:30 p.m.
To mark the 30th anniversary of the classic baseball film, “The Sandlot,” the Banks Cincinnati will have a free outdoor showing of the movie on Thursday, August 17, at 8:30 p.m. on the video board outside Great American Ball Park. The 1993 baseball comedy tells the story of a group of young players in the summer of 1962 who welcome the new kid in town, Scotty Smalls, to the San Fernando Valley. To make friends, Smalls joins the boys on their sandlot baseball team and, unknowingly, gets them into the biggest pickle of their lives. The film has become a cult classic and is regarded as one of the greatest baseball movies of all time.


Original cast members Grant Gelt (“Bertram”), Victor DiMattia (“Timmy Timmons”), and Shane Obedzinski (“Tommy ‘Repeat’ Timmons”) will be at the screening Play Forever, their new youth sports non-profit organization, and will be in attendance for the screening.


The cast will also appear at Moerlein Lager House on August 17th as celebrity bartenders during Happy Hour before the screening of the film from 6-8pm.
