Sandlot Cast Twitter


Can you believe it's been 20 years since Benny pickled The Beast?!

Most of the all-grown-up cast of The Sandlot reunited over the weekend at the Salt Lake City baseball diamond where so many of the 1993 film's most memorable scenes were shot.

Speaking of Benny "The Jet" Rodriguez and Scotty Smalls, Mike Vitar—who's now a fireman—and Tom Guiry (who most recently appeared on Elementary) were not there. (Nor was Bertram because, well, nobody every saw him again.)

But plenty of other Sandlot stars were on hand to watch the film's director, David Mickey Evans, propose to his girlfriend, Stacey McGillis, at home plate.

With 1,500 people in attendance for a screening of the kiddie classic, Evans got down on one knee and popped the question in front of cast members such as Marty York (Yeah-Yeah), Chauncey Leopardi (Squints), Victor DiMattia (Timmy Timmons), Shane Obedzinski (Tommy Timmons) and Patrick Renna (Hamilton "Ham" Porter aka The Great Hambino).

After McGillis said yes, they all played catch, of course, with local kids and members of the AAA Salt Lake Bees joining in the fun.

"I don't think any of us, when we were playing basically on this field 21 years ago, could have ever known there would be 1,500 people here to watch us play baseball," Renna told the Salt Lake Tribune.

"Nowhere does this movie mean as much to everyone, especially us, as it does right here in S.L.C.," added Evans.
