The Sandlot Cast Reunion Will Remind You That Life Moves Fast

The Sandlot Cast Reunion Will Remind You That Life Moves Fast

The recognition they still get today is nice, but it's nothing compared to the experience of making "The Sandlot", which was released in 1993.

It's been 25 years since "The Sandlot" was released, and the cast reunited on "The Today Show" to talk about the glory days and how things have been for them since the cult film hit theaters.

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. And for anyone who grew up in the '90s, another treat that defined the season was "The Sandlot". The actors who played stars such as "Bertram", "DeNunez", "Ham", "Repeat", "Smalls", "Squints", "Timmy" and "Yeah-Yeah" were on hand, but "Benny "the Jet" Rodriguez" was a no-show.

In the segment, Marty York, who portrayed Yeah-Yeah (and, as a buff grownup looks nothing like that fast-talking skinny kid), opened up about the enduring legacy of the film and its effect on his life.




"I'm Kevin Durant, it's a little-known truth, and I'll ball you up", Renna joked. "You can't walk through a Las Vegas casino without someone yelling, 'Yeah-Yeah!'" Patrick Renna, a.k.a. Ham, says he wants to see Odell Beckham Jr. go to the Patriots, so he's very bad.

"It made a big impact on a lot of people's lives", Guiry says.

"I showed (my son) the movie for the first time, and. well, he's really big on 'Moana, " proud pop Patrick Renna - who starred as Hamilton 'Ham" Porter - confessed.
