The sandlot: 1960s. Fifth-grader Scotty Smalls has just moved into town with his folks. Kids call him a dork because 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 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. The sandlot 2: Ten years ago a quirky group of kids invaded the Sandlot. Now, a new generation of kids is here in a nostalgic return to the dog days of summer, playing America's favorite pastime where dreams begin and heroes are formed. Rookie of the year: When the cast is removed from his severely broken arm, a clumsy 12-year-old is shocked to find his arm has become a 100 mile-per-hour thunderbolt, and is signed as ace pitcher for the Chicago Cubs. Everyone's hero: 10-year-old baseball fan Yankee Irving is always the last one picked for sandlot baseball games. But when Babe Ruth's prized bat is stolen during the 1932 World Series, Yankee steps up to the plate to help retrieve it for his beloved idol. He embarks on a wild cross-country journey that teaches him the stuff of real heroes, and along the way, Yankee learns the importance of perseverance and the true meaning of friendship.
