Royals minor-league catcher Cam Gallagher called "The Sandlot" his favorite movie, and he's not alone.

Twenty-five years after the release of "The Sandlot," it has become a cult classic and likely will stay that way "for-ev-er." The movie is about a boy who slowly makes friends as he learns to play baseball.*

In honor of the anniversary of the film's release, the Royals will be airing "The Sandlot" on June 2 following their 1:15 p.m. game against the Oakland A's at Kauffman Stadium.

According to a news release, fans will watch the movie right after the game from the seating bowl. Fans can purchase a regular game ticket for the viewing or one of two Theme Tickets.

A "T-Shirt Package" has a ticket to the game, a Sandlot T-shirt (see below) and a donation to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City. A "VIP Viewing Package" includes the game ticket, T-shirt and donation, as well as access to Craft & Draft to watch the movie and meet actor Brandon Adams ("Kenny DeNunez") and director David Mickey Evans.

Tickets are available at www.royals.com/themetickets.
