The Sandlot

Audio problem: When Benny and the others are looking at the destroyed baseball, when Benny and Kenny are talking their mouths are out of sync with what they are saying.

Audio problem: When Yeah-Yeah goes over the fence, he's panting but his breathing doesn't match his mouth or shoulder movements.

Revealing mistake: When the boys' rival team challenges them, all the boys throw their gloves down, except Yeah-Yeah. When they all go to pick them back up, Yeah-Yeah has to pretend to pick it up.

Trivia: According to Patrick Renna, every day of filming was between 95 and 100°, except for the day they filmed the swimming pool scene, in which the temperature was only 60°. That is why Squints is shivering when he's about to jump into the deep end.

Question: At the end of the movie, it shows Benny managing to steal home, being called safe, the catcher arguing that Benny was out and the umpire saying Benny was safe. In slow motion, it shows the catcher catching the ball and tagging Benny as he slides into home so why wasn't Benny called out?

Answer: The umpire got the call wrong in that case. It happens all the time in real life. It wasn't allowed back then, but now Major League Baseball and other sports leagues will use instant replay to make sure they get close calls right.

Answer: The film shows Benny beating the tag. Although the ball gets there before Benny, the catcher tags Benny a split second after his hand touches home plate.
