The Sandlot

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.

Continuity mistake: When the treehouse is about to explode, we see Bertram say he's getting out of there and go down the ladder. Then after some scenes we see him running out of the tree house when he was supposedly already down on the ground.

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.

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.

Hamm: Hey, do you want a S'more?
Scotty: Some more what?
Hamm: No, no. Do you want a S'more?
Scotty: I haven't had anything yet, so how can I have some more of nothing?
Hamm: You're killing me Smalls.

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.

Hamm: You play ball like a girl!

More quotes from 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.

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.

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.

Jason Hoffman

Question: Why do they all refer to Scott by his last name?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: It's pretty common to use someone's last name as a sort of nickname, especially if the last name is fun to say like "Smalls."
