Whenever a debate of greatest sports movies takes place I know some of the bigger names like Hoosiers, The Natural, or Field Of Dreams tend to get mentioned. But when it comes to baseball specifically you have to add The Sandlot into the discussion. It’s just a fantastic look at baseball and youth. The movie does a great job of “bringing us back” to the days when nothing matter in the summertime but staying cool and playing ball.
But I think one of the best moments of the movie is the insult showdown when Hamilton Porter and a rival exchange barbs back and forth until Hamilton says something he shouldn’t have!
