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

When Benny's fly ball knocks Scotty Smalls down (at around 7 mins), the camera switches from Scotty to a shot of the rest of the boys laughing (from 07:08 to 07:11), as the catcher, Ham, at home plate walking toward 1st, drops his glove (at around 10 mins) and starts to reach down (at around 11 mins) as the glove rolls away from him. But the next shot, showing Ham, Squints, Benny, and Yeah-Yeah (from 07:12 to 07:13), starts with Ham already standing upright with his glove on his left hand, looking out to left field (where Scotty has fallen) and then raising his mask with his right hand.

Man, this is baseball. You gotta stop thinking. Just have fun. I mean, if you were having fun you would've caught that ball. You ever have a paper route?
I helped a guy once.
Okay, well chuck it like you throw paper. When your arm gets here, just let go. Just let go, it's that easy.
[starts to jog away
How do I catch it.
Just stand out there and stick your glove out in the air. I'll take care of it.
