The storms and tornadoes that ripped through Oklahoma on May 31 will not affect the screening on Saturday night of the classic baseball movie The Sandlot. Not only will this special screening at the Bricktown Ballpark go on as planned, but all proceeds from The Sandlot screening ticket sales will go toward American Red Cross disaster relief efforts in Oklahoma.
The Sandlot screening will start at 8:00 p.m. and gates will open at 7:30. David Mickey Evans, the director of the movie, will also be in attendance to speak to the fans about his beloved classic. Evans was also in Oklahoma City on Friday night as the tornadoes threatened Oklahoma City.
The “All Clear” sounded in OK City – we’re out of the ballpark basement, back at the hotel after 5 tornadoes hit the area. Thank u God. ;)

Luckily, the storms won’t stop Evans from meeting the fans, who he said in a recent interview with Renegade Cinema have been amazing at the The Sandlot screenings across the country (read the entire David Mickey Evans interview here).
“What is really great about it is that I have had so many – you know millions of people – thank me over the years for the film,” Evans said. “I now get to thank them back personally. That was important to me when we started to figure out how to do this and it never gets old. It is a lot of fun.”
