The Sandlot is a 1993 American coming-of-age sports comedy film co-written, directed, and narrated by David Mickey Evans. The film is set in the summer of 1962, fifth-grader Scott Smalls (played by Tom Guiry) moves to the San Fernando Valley area of Los Angeles, CA and is encouraged by his mother to make friends, as he tries to join a group of boys who play baseball daily at the neighborhood sandlot. It tells the story of a young group of baseball players, starring Tom Guiry, Mike Vitar, Karen Allen, Denis Leary, and James Earl Jones. It grossed $34 million worldwide and has since become a cult classic film.
