The Sandlot

A kid named Scott Smalls moves into town. He's not cool but he's a little of a nerd. Another kid named Benny Rodriguez offers Smalls toplay baseball with the other kids(After the kids saw that Smalls couldn't catch or throw). Benny does not give up hope for Smalls and teaches him how to do baseball stuff. They do funny stuff. If they lose a ball, they can't get it because a dog called "The Beast" is a monster dog that lives over the fence. Smalls snatches his stepfather's autographed ball with Babe Ruth. He hits it over the fence and needs to get it back before his stepfather gets back from a buisiness trip!

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.

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.

LorgSkyegon

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.
