A 1993 American coming-of-age film directed by David M. Evans, which tells the story of a group of young baseball players during the summer of 1962.

It´s the early 1960s and fifth-grader Scotty Smalls has just moved into town with his folks. Kids call him a dork – he can’t even through a baseball! But that changes when the leader of the neighborhood gang recruits him to play on the nearby sandlot field.

It’s the beginning of a magical summer of baseball, wild adventures, first kisses, and fearsome confrontations with the dreaded beast and its owner who live behind the left field fence. Soon nine boys have become best friends, Scotty is a part of a team, and their leader has become a local legend in this hilarious and warm-hearted comedy.

In English, with English subtitles. IMDB rating: 7,8. 97 mins.
