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 Vincent Drug store that is seen when Smalls first goes to the "Sandlot" was also used five years earlier in Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers
(1988) when Rachel and her friend take Jamie to pick out a costume. It was also used the next year in Halloween 5
(1989): The Revenge of Michael Myers in the scene where the Man in Black steps off a bus and makes his way through town. See more
When the kids are kicked out of the pool, they gather their clothes and run, but Tommy just runs without picking up clothes (at around 33 mins). In the next shot, he is running with an armful of clothes (at around 45 mins). Both Tommy and his older brother, Timmy, are wearing plaid trunks with white trim and both run off (at around 33 mins) without picking up cloths. See more
