"The Sandlot" Anniversary Tour comes to Classic Park
The stories that touch the heart are the ones that come from the heart. “The Sandlot” is clearly a film about baseball set in the 1960s, but its inspiration derived from a real-life experience. David Mickey Evans directed and narrated “The Sandlot” 20 years ago and is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the film with a tour of several ballparks, where the film is being shown. Included in this tour is Classic Park, home of the Lake County Captains. The IBI's Stephanie Metzger recently spoke with Evans to discuss the film.

On-Deck with the Captains: 6/19/13 - 6/25/13

The offense has added a number of home runs as they hit eight this past week, so it seems things may be starting to come together for the 28-45 squad.

On-Deck with the Captains: 6/12/13 - 6/18/13
The first half of the Lake County Captains 2013 season is officially in the books and so far, it’s been a tough go for the guys.
