The Sandlot is a 1993 American comedy-drama sports film about a group of young baseball players during the summer of 1962. The film was filmed in Utah and directed by David M. Evans. It was released with the title The Sandlot Kids in Australia and the United Kingdom. The film is told through the perspective of Scotty Smalls (Tom Guiry), who is reminiscing about the summer of 1962. Smalls moves with his mother (Karen Allen) and stepfather Bill (Denis Leary) to a new neighborhood outside Los Angeles and has a hard time making new friends.

Smalls is reluctant to join their game because he fears he will be ridiculed based on his inexperience. Nevertheless, he chooses to play with them, but fails to catch a simple fly ball and properly throw the ball back to his infielders. All the other players, except for Benny Rodriguez (Mike Vitar), begin to laugh at Smalls for committing defensive miscues, prompting him to leave the sandlot in embarrassment. Benny, who is the best player in the neighborhood, shields Smalls from
