“Heroes get remembered, but legends never die.”
The Sandlot hit theaters on April 7th, 1993, and still is remembered as one of the all-time great sports movies. Whether it was Benny “The Jet” Rodriguez’s speed on the baseball field, Squints love for lifeguard Wendy Peffercorn or Ham talking smack behind the plate, the Sandlot story still lives to this day.
The Sandlot demonstrated how sports could unite communities and bridge friendships that could last a lifetime. Plus, a handful of memorable quotes like “you play ball like a girl!”.
The Sandlot should be on the “must-watch” list for all families and baseball lovers. 28 years and still going strong.
