The series premiere of Play Ball: Baseball at the Movies! The show where your hosts, Andrew and Paul, watch and analyze every baseball movie. On the mound for our pilot episode is the 1993 classic The Sandlot. Leading off, we walk through the plot and give our reviews. Then, on our Inside Baseball segment (16:03), we dive into the history, trivia, lore, stats, and theories from the baseball in the movie. We discuss the REAL story behind Babe Ruth’s legendary “Called Shot” home run. We explore the theory of The Sandlot as a metaphor for breaking baseball’s color barrier. Andrew reveals exactly how much the Hank Aaron rookie card Benny gives away to ghost Babe Ruth is worth today. Lastly, we name our picks for the best trash talkers in the game. Sliding into home, we rate the movie (47:00) and preview next week’s episode.

Play Ball: Baseball at the Movies is produced by Paul LeSchofs and Andrew Knopp. Our theme music, Slow Burn, was created by Kevin MacLeod. Our mascot was designed by Yehudi Mercado.
