Movies in the Park: The Sandlot

The Sandlot: PG | 1 hour 41 minutes

Description: In the summer of 1962, fifth-grader Scott Smalls moves to the San Fernando Valley. His mother encourages him to make friends, and he tries to join a group of boys who play baseball daily at the neighborhood sandlot — brothers first baseman Timmy and right outfielder Tommy “The Repeater” Timmons, shortstop Michael “Squints” Palledorous, third baseman Alan “Yeah-Yeah” McClennan, second baseman Bertram Grover Weeks, pitcher Kenny “The Heater” DeNunez, catcher Hamilton “Ham” Porter, and their leader and best player Benjamin Franklin “Benny” Rodriguez. Everyone but Benny laughs at Smalls’ lack of ability, and an attempt to play catch with his stepfather Bill leaves Smalls with a black eye. Nevertheless, Benny invites him onto the team as a left outfielder, and helps him earn the boys’ respect. When Ham hits a home run into an adjacent backyard, the team stops Smalls from retrieving the ball and tells him of “the Beast”, a legendarily fearsome English Mastiff living behind the fence.

Movie will begin at dusk!
