The Sandlot Kids

The Sandlot Kids

You’re killing me Smalls! The Yankees have recreated one of the most famous scenes from The Sandlot. Probably one of the most recognizable movies in baseball, the movie brings to life the dedication and passion of the game through the eyes of a group of youths. Throughout the cult classic, the kids idolize the one and only, Babe Ruth.

During the most iconic scene of the movie Smalls, the main character, brings a baseball signed by the Sultan of Swat to the field. The boys end up loosing the ball and it is only then that Smalls tells everyone just who signed the baseball. The group of kids cannot believe that they played with a baseball signed by The Babe. Brett Gardner takes on the naive role of Smalls while Jacoby Ellsbury, Dellin Betances, C.C. Sabathia, Didi Gregorius and Brian McCann play the incredulous Sandlot kids. The group of Yankees reenact the scene perfectly. You can see the video below. To see some of the hilarious outtakes, you can go here.
