Beer, baseball, and a movie … what else could a person want?

In celebration of the Round Rock Express' 10th year of playing hard ball they are teaming up with the Alamo Drafthouse Lake Creek to offer special Sunday screenings of some classic baseball films. These screenings are special because players from the Express will be on hand to meet fans and sign autographs. The only catch is that tickets are available only at the Dell Diamond during home games. The tickets are free.
The Sandlot gets things rolling this Sunday, April 26 at the Lake Creek Alamo with the player meet-and-greet session beginning at 7pm. Up next in the series is one of the greatest baseball films of all time, Bull Durham. It almost makes you forget about every other awful Kevin Costner movie ever made (including 1999's monotonous For Love of the Game). Almost. Bull Durham screens Sunday, May 24 and patrons 18 and under must be escorted by an adult.
