Scotty Smalls moves to a new neighborhood with his mom and stepdad, and wants to learn to play baseball. The neighborhood baseball guru Rodriquez takes Smalls under his wing, and soon he's part of the local baseball buddies. They fall into adventures involving baseball, treehouse sleep-ins, the desirous lifeguard at the local pool, the snooty rival ball team, and the travelling fair. Beyond the fence at the back of the sandlot menaces a legendary ball-eating dog called The Beast, and the kids inevitably must deal with him. Written by

They're more than a team. They're the best buddies in the entire history of the world.

Mr. Mertle (James Earl Jones
) shows the boys a photo of himself with Babe Ruth
and Lou Gehrig
. Of course it is a retouched photo. Jones' head was put on the body of Hall Of Fame slugger Jimmie Foxx
who was the real player pictured with Ruth and Gehrig. The real photo can be seen in many baseball books. See more
