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!

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.

Babe Ruth: Remember, there's heroes and there's legends. Heroes get remembered, but legends never die. Follow your heart kid, and you'll never go wrong.

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: Benny gave a hat to Smalls to replace the fish hat. What team and what year was the hat?

Answer: It's a blue hat with a yellow/gold capitol "C" for the logo, which doesn't correspond to any major league teams. It could be a minor league or school team hat. Benny refers to it as his "old" hat, so he may have replaced it with the Dodgers hat he's wearing.
