About the Movie
It's the early 1960s and fifth-grader Scotty Smalls (Tom Guiry) has just moved into town with his folks (Karen Allen and Denis Leary). Kids call him a dork—he can't even throw a baseball! But that changes when the leader of the neighborhood gang recruits him to play on the nearby sandlot field. It's the beginning of a magical summer of baseball, wild adventures, first kisses, and fearsome confrontations with the dreaded Beast and its owner (James Earl Jones) who live behind the left field fence. Soon nine boys have become best friends, Scotty is part of a team, and their leader has become a local legend in this hilarious and warmhearted comedy.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Nothing about his modest coming-of-age comedy demands anything like this awestruck approach.
Fresh: Old baseball wisdom: The best teams win with strong fundamentals. So do the best movies.
Rotten: Sweet and sincere, the film is also a remarkably shallow wade, rife with incident and slim on substance.
Fresh: The Sandlot isn't well made but it's alive with dopey, summertime spirit.
about time iTunes!!!!!! you guys add the stupid movies every week but you leave out classics like this out
Greatest baseball movie ever made!
I think very highly of "Major League" and "Field of Dreams", but this baseball movie is 2nd to none! Why there are any rotten ratings for this is unbelievable and ridiculous. From Smalls to Squints to Wendy, a movie to be enjoyed again and again.
FINALLY on iTunes!!!
Why this movie took so long to appear in iTunes is beyond belief! Thank you for adding this classic film!
