It’s summer, so that means going to the beach, swimming in the pool, and spending some time at the ball park. In honor of America’s greatest pastime, we look at a coming-of-age movie that’s the pinnacle of youth baseball: The Sandlot.
Set in the early 1960’s, we follow Scotty Smalls, who just moved to a new town with his mom and stepdad. Eventually he becomes a part of the neighborhood kids who play baseball together. He bonds with his new friends through adventures, mischief, and baseball.
Released in 1993, The Sandlot is the epitome of the spirit of baseball and what it means to a kid. Check out the retro trailer below!
