The Sandlot (1993)

Ending / spoiler

(15 votes)

Benny runs into the yard to get the ball and is chased by the Beast through town. Benny makes it back the yard and the fence falls on the Beast. Benny and Smalls lift up the fence to save the Beast and it licks Smalls. They finally meet the owner, who is a old blind man who used to play baseball with Babe Ruth. The man decides to give Smalls a baseball which is signed by Babe Ruth and the rest of the 1927 Yankees, only if the boys come talk to him about baseball once a week. In the end, Smalls tells the audience what happened to the boys, and how the Beast was named Hercules. We last see that Smalls is a baseball announcer and Benny plays pro ball for L.A. They give the thumbs up for each other as Benny wins the game.


Continuity mistake: When Smalls tries to throw the ball for the first time, everyone laughs at him and falls down. When it shows the guys from Smalls' view, it shows Yeah-Yeah falling down. Then when Smalls is running away, it shows Yeah-Yeah falling again.

More trivia for The Sandlot

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 catcher tags Benny on the chest after he touches home plate with his left hand. Safe.


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.
