The Sandlot is a film about a young boy named Scotty Smalls who moves to a new neighborhood right before the end of 5th grade. After meeting some new boys at the local sandlot, he is eventually accepted into their group of baseball-loving friends. When Smalls unknowingly brings a baseball signed by Babe Ruth to the field to play with, he gets them into "the biggest pickle any of them had ever seen."
