The Sandlot follows a group of baseball loving kids during a 1960’s summer. When Scotty Smalls moves into a new town he longs to make friends with a local group who plays baseball together. They soon accept him and they go on to face their collective fear of a scary neighbor and his dog, the Beast. This is a coming of age movie that gives off the vibe of a simpler time when summers weren’t so hot and screens were yet to invade every aspect of our lives and the economy still hadn’t crashed. This movie is a summer classic, a coming of age movie everyone should see. It has so many memorable moments, characters, and lines.
