ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- One of the best baseball movies of all time is turning 25 this year. On Friday, August 31 the Red Wings are hosting Salute to "The Sandlot" Night featuring an autograph/photo appearance from Chauncey Leopardi who played Squints in the film presented by AT&T, Jolly Time Popcorn and John Betlem Heating & Cooling. 
After the game is our annual Family Campout* presented by Meyer's RV Superstores and Dunkin' Donuts, where we will be showing the movie on the videoboard. 
Leopardi will sign autogrpahs and pose for photos from 6:00 - 6:40 pm and again from 7:15 - 8:00 pm. Fans will need to purchase autograph and/or photo tickets for this appearance once inside the gates on August 31. The cost will be $10 for an autograph ticket, $10 for a photo ticket or $15 to get both an autograph and photo with Squints. 
Throughout the game, we'll be playing clips from the movie as well as some fun, themed in-game promotions.
After the game, we'll have a post-game fireworks show courtesy of the Local Toyota Dealers.
Have some old baseball gloves, balls, bats, other gear? We will be holding an equipment drive on this night to benefit Baseball Miracles - a not-for-profit team of baseball and softball instructors who join together to teach boys and girls with economic and environmental disadvantages throughout the world.
*All fans planning to campout after the game can move their cars into the VIP parking lot after the game and at that point can bring in all tents, sleeping bags, etc. In the morning there will be an assortment of bagels and coffee from Dunkin' Donuts.
