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
No uniforms. No problem. No girls. No problem. No ball. *BIG* problem!

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 film is set in southern California, but filmed in northern Utah (in the suburban area around Salt Lake City.) There are several goofs throughout the movie that point this out, the most glaring of which being a Romney sign (see Trivia), and the appearance of Vincent Drug, which is a family-owned business in Midvale, Utah (a Salt Lake suburb.)
