Storyline

Scotty Smalls moves to a new neighborhood with his mom and stepdad, and wants to learn to play baseball. Rodriguez, the neighborhood baseball guru, takes Smalls under his wing - soon he becomes 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 Dan Urson

During the ride, a girl with brown hair in a ponytail and wearing a pink polo shirt is seated behind Ham for most of the duration. However, in some shots (especially towards the end of the ride), a different girl who is tall, has blonde hair in a braid and wears a mauve blouse and red pants is seen instead, who is the one Ham vomits on.

Capturing time on film.
18 February 1999 | by Peach-2See all my reviews

I thought The Sandlot captured the innocence and joy of being young and playing baseball in a small town neighborhood. The film isn't perfect but has great atmosphere. I enjoyed the sub-plot with the dog and James Earl Jones and I loved the scenes when the kids were just being kids and enjoying the summer. The film made me feel good and I sometimes think that's all a film is supposed to do. Check it out.
