The Sandlot turns 20! Can you believe it?

SCOTT JACOBS

Sometimes the passage of time is best defined by moments. Other times, you could argue, it’s better defined by media. In particular, classics, which, unlike life itself, never truly age. That’s what makes movies like The Sandlot so cool. 20 years after it hit the big screen — its coming of age story remains unchanged; Its values are still rooted in the power of sport and friendship. The never-ending cycle of finding your way through your younger years, still remains as relevant and timeless as ever.

“Your Killing Me Smalls!” is still part of the American lexicon today and doesn’t figure to be going away anytime soon. As long as there is baseball and childhood, there will be a home for timeless gems like The Sandlot. Best remembered for its 9 young actors (now into their 20s and 30s), it is sometimes easy to forget that big names such as James Earl Jones, Denis Leary, and Karen Allen were also part of the cast.

The Sandlot, which made its debut in 1993 to a plethora of favorable reviews, is rooted in a story which takes us back to the 1960s. Fifth grader Scotty Smalls has just moved to a new town with his parents, and almost immediately feels out of place with his new peers. But the neighborhood kids need one more player for their team and Scotty just happens to be in desperate need of friends (and he has a ball for them to use). Not exactly a match made in heaven – “He can’t even throw!” – it’s a slow arduous process for the goofy new kid to fit in.

But we’ve all been there: moving to a new place, needing new friends, and crying out for a group to accept you and embrace you, giving you the confidence you need to build a foundation. And that’s just one of many aspects that makes The Sandlot a movie relatable to anyone.

The Sandlot, 20th Anniversary Edition. debuts on BluRay March 27th. With Spring Training underway, and the start of the 2013 MLB season not too far behind, we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate.
