The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are watching movies about little kids with issues, the first more homicidal and the next more earnestly deranged. They discuss 1992's "Mikey," a forgotten but enjoyably silly killer kid movie, and 2006's "Everyone's Hero," a passion project for the last Christopher Reeves.

-Switch the Pitch -- "Mikey" / "Everyone's Hero"
-The guys discuss the bizarre animated movie co-directed by Christopher Reeve as a passion project, a 2006 movie about Babe Ruth, a talking baseball and a talking baseball bat, and then the far more entertaining 1992 movie "Mikey" about a killer kid who also happens to be a sex pervert and little twerp. They'll combine elements from both into an original pitch.
