I'm not sure how I missed this one! 

Matt Paré (aka the "Homeless Minor Leaguer") and Ty Kelly (MiLB, Las Vegas 51s) star in this hilarious skit that imagines how the 2001 romantic comedy Summer Catch (2001) came to be. 

For the uninitiated (and you may want to stay that way), the CCBL is the setting for Summer Catch, which stars Freddie Prinze Jr. and Jessica Biel.

Matt Paré announced his departure from baseball earlier this year after spending a few years in the Giants organization. In 2012, he was a temp player for the Y-D Red Sox before spending the majority of that summer with NECBL's Newport Gulls. Subscribe to HomelessMinorLeaguer on Youtube and his other channel Hey!

Ty Kelly is a utilityman for the New York Mets organization, currently in AAA with the Las Vegas 51s. In 2008, he was a CCBL All-Star on the Brewster Whitecaps.
