Storyline

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 Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

Goofs

In the movies opening scene, adult Scott narrates that Babe Ruth's called shot happened in the bottom 9th inning in Game 3 of the 1932 World Series with the tying run on base. This would imply that the Yankees were down by 2 runs at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx. However the game was played at Wrigley Field in Chicago, and it was in the top of the 5th in a 4-4 tie where Ruth hit his called shot. See more »

Awesome movie!!!!
1 January 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This Movie is the best ever!!!!! It truly is a classic, and I know that because every time I mention the name "The Sandlot", people constantly rave about it.

Also, when it first came out it was my favorite movie, and then I never saw it again until I bought it 2 weeks ago and have watched it approx. 7 times since I got it!!!

"The Sandlot" is a movie I will never get tired of and can literally watch over and over again for sure!!!! This movie keeps me laughing every time and the more you watch it, the more you'll love it!! Definitely one to see!!
