Come join us for a screening of The Kid Who Only Hit Homers in the Grandstand Theater. Based on the children’s book written by Matt Christopher, the 52 minute film tells the story of 12 year old baseball player Sylvester Coddmeyer. Lacking confidence in his playing skills and on the verge of quitting the game he loves, Sylvester’s fortunes change when he is approached by the ghost of Babe Ruth. Consulting Ruth for guidance, Sylvester experiences unexpected success at the plate and becomes one of the best hitters around. How will Sylvester handle his newfound talent and national fame?
Find out more about Sylvester’s story on July 9th at 7 pm. Following the screening, we will conduct a short Q&A session with Dale and Duane Christopher, sons of the late Matt Christopher, and actor Alex Montero.
