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
In Bill's rec room, he has a pennant of the Athletics, of which only the bottom is shown. The typeface matches that which was used by the Oakland Athletics in the late 1980's, and the colors used are green and gold. The Kansas City Athletics did not begin using green and gold as their colors until 1963, after the 1962 time depicted in the film. See more »
[after Wendy Peffercorn pulls Squints from the pool]
Squints! Come on Squints!
Come on Squints. Squints!
Come on, Squints, come on!
Come on, Squints. You can do it! Pull through, bud!
Come on, man, come on!
Yeah yeah, he looks pretty crappy.
Squints! Come on man!
My God, he looks like a dead fish.

I grew up watching The Sandlot and what i realized about this movie is that this film doesn't have the players winning or losing, but this is about friendship and how a big dog can make your worst dreams come true. The Sandlot is about a gawky kid named Smalls(Tom Guiry) who just moves into the neighborhood and tries to blend in with the crowd, until he fails. Mike Vitar who plays the neighborhood baseball hero Benny, helps Smalls play baseball and fit him in with the crowd. The team accepts Smalls and what makes the film interesting like i written above is that this film isn't about winning or losing, but about living your days in the summer when you are ten to twelve and realize that there is more to life than winning.
Overall a great movie.
