The Sandlot

For anyone out there who is a baseball fan - If you have not seen the movie "Sandlot" you may want to check it out. If you have kids it would be a great movie for you to watch with your kids. The film came out in 1993 but I just seen it again recently and would like to let everyone know what a great movie it is. No,it is not a manly action movie or a feminine chick flick but a movie for the whole family that all can enjoy together.

The film takes place in the early 60's when Scotty Smalls moves to Los Angeles with his family. Scotty is worried that he will have no friends during the whole summer and watches some other kids playing baseball one day. A ball goes to him and he throws it back (not a good throw) and all the kids consider him to be a loser except for one of them named Benny Rodriguez who wants Scotty to be part of their team so they can have a full team of 9 players. Benny eventually gets the others to accept Scotty and with help from Benny he becomes better and an important part of their team.

Like mentioned earlier it is a great film where they have to deal with "the beast". The beast is on the other side of the fence where a home run is hit and stories have been told of this beast that no one returns if they try to retrieve their ball. They also have to deal with another upper class style baseball team and prove their baseball skills. You have them also dealing with their young teen hormones as they all have a crush on the lifeguard.

The end of the film (back in present time) reveals how Scotty and Benny had followed similar paths in life and though doing different things in life are still deeply connected. I'll just say that as I don't want to give it away in case you plan to see the film.

The movie emphasizes on friendship, baseball, heroism and responsibility. This movie gets a big thumbs up from me.

There is a part 2 of "Sandlot" that I have not seen but probably will soon.
