The Sandlot

U.S., 1993

When Scott Smalls moves to a new town, he joins his neighbors on the sandlot to play baseball, except that he doesn’t really know the game. As he learns from his new friends, he also comes to learn about “The Beast”—the notorious dog that lives beyond the fence of the ballfield. When his father’s Babe Ruth-signed baseball gets hit into the Beast’s yard, the boys must find a plan to retrieve the prized possession before it's too late. Featuring a fun-loving ensemble cast and a memorable carnival scene, The Sandlot is a baseball film for all ages, just in time for the season to start.

DCP, color, 101 min. Director: David Mickey Evans. Screenwriter: David Mickey Evans, Robert Gunter. With: Tom Guiry, Mike Vitar, Dennis Leary, Karen Allen, James Earl Jones.
