About Call of The Sandlot

Call of The Sandlot takes you back to the time when kids played until their mothers called them in for dinner. Over four digital episodes, KCPT and Flatland look back into our local baseball history to tell you why sandlots disappeared and how Sam and Ana Beckett, a Kansas City couple, and the Kansas City Royals are looking to bring the tradition of the sandlot back. Discover what it was like for Frank White to play baseball while growing up in KC and how the Royals are hoping to instill leadership skills and discover untapped talent with the Urban Youth Academy being built in Parade Park behind the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum. Get ready to heed the Call of The Sandlot.
