Eager to make friends, new-kid-in-town Scotty (Tom Guiry) heads for the neighborhood sandlot, hoping to join a pickup baseball game. He’s not any good, but the others grow to accept him as they teach him about the sport. His joy turns to horror, though, when he launches a ball signed by Babe Ruth into the junkyard of a crotchety neighbor with a menacing dog. Frightened, the boys test their mettle when they scheme to retrieve the ball.

Paired with JAWS for the perfect 4th of July celebration.

“This is a movie...that allows its kids to be kids, that shows them in the insular world of imagination and dreaming that children create entirely apart from adult domains and values.” ––Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

“A scruffy underdog yarn that will appeal not only to kids but also to their thirty- or fortysomething parents.“ ––Duane Byrge, Hollywood Reporter

“Old baseball wisdom: The best teams win with strong fundamentals. So do the best movies.” ––Bob Cannon, Entertainment Weekly
