“The Sandlot” is coming to the South Side this weekend.

In honor of the baseball classic’s 25th anniversary, the White Sox will join a league-wide celebration of “The Sandlot” with a special screening at Guaranteed Rate Field. The White Sox will play “The Sandlot” on the centerfield video board after their home game against the Athletics on Saturday.

The screening will begin approximately 10 minutes after the last out of the afternoon game.

Fans who have tickets to the June 23 game also have the chance to win “Sandlot” collectables:

As part of the celebration, fans will have the opportunity to win copies of The Sandlot – 25th Anniversary Collector’s Edition Blue-ray™ during the White Sox game. The collectible edition from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment features a set of 10 custom Topps® baseball cards of the iconic characters as well as an all-new, full-color poster and booklet filled with behind-the-scenes photos from Director David Mickey Evans’ personal archive.
