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.

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
