After starring in movies that include “The Sandlot” and “My Girl,” Shane Obedzinski decided he didn’t want to work for anyone else, so years after he graduated from Bloomingdale High School he opened a pizza joint.
Part of working for himself means Obedzinski has his hands in everything from doing the dishes to deep dish pizza making.
In the cult classic movie “The Sandlot” Obedzinski played the character Tommy ‘Repeat’ Timmons. Now that he co-owns Times Square Pizza Company in Brandon he has ‘repeat’ customers that come in to chat with him about his role in the movie.
25 years after the “The Sandlot” debuted in theaters, Obedzinski and the gang are back together, touring the country, promoting a documentary about the making of the movie.
Obedzinski and his former co-stars spent this past weekend promoting the documentary in Washington D.C. and Atlanta. He made it back to town just in time to do our WTTA Great 38 live segments Where In The Bay Is Double-A?
The Sandlot documentary will be released in select theaters July 20-22.
