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

The name of the other park the sandlot kids play the little league team at was the L.C. Romney Baseball Park (on the scoreboard at 47:40 and 48:04). L. C. Romney was a commissioner of Salt Lake City and a democratic candidate for Governor of Utah in 1956. The film was shot in Utah. See more
The end credits give thanks for the use of clips for a movie called "The Wolfman" (this is the movie being watched in the auditorium during the beast chase scene.) This film, however, is actually called "The Wolf Man" (with "Wolf Man" as two separate words.) See more
