The Bogue Chitto baseball team will get the chance to play in the upcoming movie “Porches and Private Eyes.”

Travis Mills of Running Wild Films made a request recently of the Lincoln County School District to use the field and team in the movie. The Board of Trustees approved the request at Monday’s meeting.

“Everybody is playing that Saturday on March 19 except Bogue Chitto,” Superintendent Mickey Myers said. “So they’re going to have a little scene in the movie of a baseball game.”

Myers said he was assured that the movie would be rated PG at worst. Parents would be allowed to opt-out if they didn’t want their children to participate.

“I’m convinced that this is going to be a clean movie,” Myers said.
