wish for a "Sandlot" clubhouse came true!

Kaleb, 6
Hematologic Disorder

Kaleb is an enthusiastic fan of the movie “The Sandlot” and wished for a fort inspired by the 1993 cult classic. Kretschmar® Premium Deli Meats and Coborn’s grocery stores teamed with Make-A-Wish Minnesota to make Kaleb’s wish a reality. The three organizations granted him a clubhouse just like the one from the film. Actor Patrick Renna, who played “Ham” in “The Sandlot”, was on hand to celebrate with Kaleb for the official dedication party. Renna helped cut the ribbon to open the clubhouse to Kaleb and all of his friends and family. The actor posed for several pictures and signed numerous autographs throughout the day. Kretschmar® and Coborn’s® supplied refreshments and sandwiches for everyone and gave Kaleb an oversized card full of well wishes that were collected over the month of June from the customers and employees at its stores. The clubhouse is a near-replica of the fort occupied by the gang in “The Sandlot”. It stands about five feet off the ground in Kaleb’s backyard. It has a balcony, slide, tire swing and a pole to slide down.
