The Sandlot, also known as The Sandlot Kids, is a 1993 American coming-of-age baseball comedy film co-written, directed and narrated by David M. Evans, which tells the story of a group of young baseball players during the summer of 1962. It stars Tom Guiry, Mike Vitar, Karen Allen, Denis Leary and James Earl Jones.
The character Scottie Smalls (Thomas Guiry) moves to a new neighborhood where he manages to make friends with a group of kids who play baseball at the sandlot.
