Synopsis:

Major League Baseball superstar Tommy "Santa" Santorelli (Luke Perry) racks up great numbers at the plate, but his "me-first" attitude drags his team down. But Tommy gets a second chance when he's knocked unconscious and wakes up as a 12-year-old on his childhood playing field...the sandlot! Now, with a greedy developer, Earl Needman, threatening to bulldoze the sandlot unless Tommy's ragtag friends can beat Needman's much-better team, Tommy must decide whether to put his own interests first by switching teams...or stay true to his friends by leading them to their greatest victory yet!

Take the field with a new line-up of scrappy sandlot sluggers for a memorable and heartwarming journey back to the sandlot when The Sandlot: Heading Home premieres exclusively on DVD May 1st from Fox Home Entertainment. A follow-up to the beloved original movie The Sandlot and the #1 live-action direct-to-video release of 2005 - The Sandlot 2, this all-new backyard baseball story again recruits the universal values of friendship, teamwork and determination to weave an inspiring and relatable story for sports fans of all ages. Featuring an all-star line-up including Luke Perry (Beverly Hills 90210), Danny Nucci (World Trade Center) and a special cameo appearance by baseball great and host of ESPN's "Baseball Tonight" John Kruk, plus the return of the memorable character "Squints" from The Sandlot (played by Chauncey Leopardi), this timeless family favorite is directed by William Dear (Angels in the Outfield). Debuting in the heart of baseball season, The Sandlot: Heading Home harkens back to the spirit of the original film to follow arrogant baseball superstar Tommy Santorelli as he travels back to 1976 and relives his boyhood days on the sandlot baseball team, this time choosing friendship over glory, and ultimately earning both!

A DVD the whole family will enjoy, The Sandlot: Heading Home hits one out of the park with fun-filled bonus content including blooper reel, on-the-set featurette with two of the film's young stars, Backyard Baseball computer game demo, Cal Ripken Academy instructional video and an exclusive interview with Major League Baseball legend Rich "Goose" Gossage.
