The Sandlot Children Reunite After 25 Years to Play Some Baseball

The Sandlot director and narrator David Mickey Evans talked about the long-lasting appeal of the movie after it had been brought up that Major League Baseball players act out the movie and still quote dialogue on a daily basis.

"It's been insane, ' said Marty York, who played Alan 'Yeah-Yeah" McClennan.

You can't hear the phrase, "You're killing me, Smalls!" without knowing exactly where it came from.

See them all below, from left: Brandon Quintin Adams (Kenny DeNunez), Marty York (Alan "Yeah-Yeah" McClennan), Tom Guiry (Scotty Smalls), Victor Di Mattia (Timmy Timmons), Shane Obedzinski (Tommy "Repeat" Timmons), Chauncey Leopardi (Michael "Squints" Palledorous), Patrick Renna (Hamilton "Ham" Porter) and Grant Gelt (Bertram Weeks). "I can't walk through a Las Vegas casino without someone shouting, 'Yeah-Yeah!'"

The movie didn't necessarily impress Leopardi's teenage daughter either.

"I'm not even gonna run", he stated, admiring his personal play. National Basketball Association superstar Kevin Durant now has a picture of Ham as his Twitter photo. And this week, the entire cast-minus only Mike Vitar, who played Benny "The Jet" Rodriguez-reunited for a segment with the Today Show's Gadi Schwartz. Patrick Renna, a.k.a. Ham, says he wants to see Odell Beckham Jr. go to the Patriots, so he's bad.

Joking aside, Renna also took time to reminisce about having the team back together again.

"Seeing these guys, some of 'em I haven't seen in 25 years, but it is just like we're back", he said.
