Everyone's Hero

Synopsis: A young boy named Yankee Irving finds himself at an extraordinary crossroads: He has a chance to be a hero - and make a difference against incredible odds - or he can play it safe. With faith in himself instilled by his family, he teams up with a sassy young girl and some off-the-wall sidekicks and embarks on a sometimes perilous, often funny, cross-country quest. In the process, he restores his family's honor, befriends the world's biggest sports superstar, and reveals the hero within.

with Yankee?

You think you could take your thumb

out of my eye?




- Are you talking?

- I am.

One smart fella, he felt smart.

Two smart fellas, they felt smart.

Three smart fellas, they all felt smart.

I'm talking.

Wait a second. Where are you going?

Back to the sandlot,

where I was peacefully decomposing.

Hey, watch it there, grabby hands!

Don't make me go all

crazy eight ball on you.


Where did you go?

Hey, Fuzzy, how do I get out of here?

- This kid is nuts.

- I just wanna talk.

And I just wanna leave.

Hey, genius, it just so happens

you left a gaping hole in the infield.


Your living room is a little cramped.

And dark.


I'm rollin' in style!


Nobody gets their mitts on Screwie.

I'm going back to the sandlot.


Why can't I break a window?

Every other ball can break a window.


- What's going on in here?

- Mom, look, a talking baseball.

He never gets tired of that one.

Oh, my gosh, a talking baseball.

Well, I think I hear the meatloaf talking.

- It's saying, "Yankee, time for dinner. "

- Talking meatloaf?

Food can't talk. Except for beans.

They can make themselves heard.

- Go get cleaned up.

- She can't hear you?

I don't know. Let's see. Help!

I've been kidnapped by a deranged child!

Yup, you're right. She can't hear.

Please don't skimp on the soap.

You smell like a week-old hot dog.


Kid, quit it.

That's my protective coating of dirt.

I wish Dad was here.

Oh, sweetheart, you know

he's got to work the extra shifts.

I know, but I really need to see him.

Tell you what,

why don't you take him his dinner?

- Really?

- Just this once.

You know you're not supposed

to be there while he's working.

Thanks, Mom.

Great. So just drop me in the sandlot
