The endearing fan favorite will be throwing a curve on Blu-ray with a 20th anniversary double dip next month.

In an early announcement to retailers, 20th Century Fox has revealed 'The Sandlot, 20th Anniversary Edition' is coming to Blu-ray on March 26.

You'll have a ball with the 20th Anniversary Edition of The Sandlot featuring a complete set of 10 collectible trading cards created exclusively for this release! When fifth-grader Scotty Smalls moves to a new town with his folks, he strikes out with the neighborhood kids, because he can't even throw a baseball until the leader of the local sandlot team shows him the ropes. It's the beginning of a magical summer of wild adventures, first kisses, hilarious hijinks and fearsome confrontations with the dreaded "beast" that lives behind the left field fence. Co-starring Karen Allen, Denis Leary and James Earl Jones, The Sandlot has major-league laughs for all ages!

In connection with the release, FHE will embark on a partnership with Benny the Jet's favorite shoe brand PF Flyers, for a special one-of-a-kind promotion. Beginning March 26, a limited run of "The Secret Weapon," will be made available inside a vintage 1960's shoe box, along with a $3 SANDLOT coupon inside. Additionally, all Blu-ray and DVD combo packs will feature a 10% PF Flyer discount coupon inside the packaging. Further information on this exclusive purchase can be found at www.pfflyers.com.

Additionally, The "Sandlot Baseball Field Program" will be comprised of partnerships with Major League Baseball teams nationwide in connection with the FOX Sports Networks. Notable teams such as the St. Louis Cardinals, Texas Rangers and Minnesota Twins will coordinate baseball field renovations across the Unites States so that loyal fans and baseball lovers everywhere will get the chance to enjoy their own "Sandlot" field in their backyards. Furthermore, screenings of The Sandlot will be hosted at several Major and Minor League ballparks across the country with Director, Writer and Narrator, David Mickey Evans.
