This week’s blowholehunk is from the semi-way back. You probably remember him as Benny Rodriguez that adorable baseball hero from The Sandlot (1993). His real name is Mike Vitar and he was everygirls’ first movie star crush.
Surprisingly, he hasn’t been in too many movies. He’s done bit roles in shows like “NYPD Blue” and “Brooklyn Bridge.” Though he’s mostly known for being in one of the classic kids movies of the 90s, but he was also a part of The Mighty Duck movie franchise too, playing Luis Mendoza.
Unfortunately, I don’t have any up-to-date info on Mike Vitar. He has pretty much dropped off the face of the earth. According to imdb.com he is working in Hollywood as a firefighter, but that was of 2002. Maybe we should put his picture on some telephone poles or something. Wherever he is and whatever he’s doing, he will always be remembered as good old Benny from The Sandlot.
