Plot Summary

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

Trivia The older and younger Benny are played by real-life brothers, Pablo Vitar and Mike Vitar. See more »
Goofs At several points in the movie we see lights on at Mr. Mertle's house. However, Mr. Mertle is blind and lives alone, so having lights on would be useless to him. However, contrary to popular belief, most people who are legally blind still retain a small amount of residual vision, and they do tend to rely upon it in their everyday lives. Thus, Mr. Mertle having the lights on in his house to assist with what little vision he would have left is not an error. See more »
