Stars expected to be at Fifth Third Field for the shoot include Matthew Lillard (“Scream,” “Summer Catch” and “Scooby-Doo”), Dean Cain (“Lois & Clark,” “Hope & Faith” and “Las Vegas”), Annabeth Gish (“X-Files,” “The West Wing” and “Beautiful Girls”), Barry Bostwick (“Rocky Horror Picture and” Spin City”) and former Major League baseball players Jose Canseco and Ozzie Canseco.

The film, being directed by Oz Scott, tells the story of 12-year-old Lorenzo Moore, a young baseball player who's determined to play ball in the local Colt league and joins a team of misfits that competes against other teams for the chance to shag balls in the upcoming Major League Home Run Derby.
