(PIX11)--Henry & Me tells the story of a cancer-stricken 11-year-old Yankees fan who magically finds himself in a field of dreams that features pinstriped legends from the past and present.

The movie is based on children's books written by Ray Negron-- a long time Yankees advisor.

Initially, Alex Rodriguez was slated to play a heroic role in the film. But in light of his suspension, his part hit the cutting room floor.

Richard Gere, a long-time Yankees fan, voices the title role of Henry. He says his favorite baseball memory was attending Cal Ripken Jrs Hall of Fame induction with his son.

A man who knows a little bit about the Bronx, Chazz Palminteri, gives life to Babe Ruth in the film.

Portions of the DVD sales will go to dozens of charities. For more info head to
