In March, Insider shared the good news for baseball and film fanatics that the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory was partnering up with Twentieth Century Fox to present “Legends Never Die: 25 Years of The Sandlot.” The exhibit has been a hit, so to speak, according to Slugger staff.

On Saturday, May 19, the museum is hosting “The Sandlot For-Ev-Ver Fest” featuring the film’s co-writer and director, David M. Evans; cast member Shane Obedzinski, who played Tommy “Repeat” Timmons; and props master Terry Haskell.

The event also will feature a free “Sandlot” mini-bat for the first 250 guests, free admission for those who dress as characters from the 1993 movie, trivia contests and much more.

It’ll run from 9 a.m.-5 p.m., and a special Q&A with the cast mentioned above will take place at 2 p.m.

Admission also includes a look at the full exhibit, which features such props as the sacred Babe Ruth baseball once guarded by The Beast, Squints’ glasses and the cereal box periscope, among many others. The exhibit continues through Sept. 9.

The Slugger Museum is located at 800 W. Main St.
