Trivia

I have collected all the famous movie trivia questions with answers from Reddit and other sources. They can be very useful in quizzes or games, or simply to learn more information. Most of the fun The Sandlot details are suitable for kids.

  1. Babe Ruth asks if he can keep a Henry Aaron baseball card. Henry Aaron, better known as Hank, broke the Babe's career home run record, the only player to do so at the time the movie came out.

  2. James Earl Jones' character Mr. Mertle says that he played alongside Babe Ruth who played between 1914-1935. Unfortunately this wouldn't have been possible because the MLB didn't allow players of African American descent until 1947.

Hidden Details

1 - Smalls says that Benny would play baseball no matter what and "tolerates the pool the most." When Squints drowns we can see that he doesn't even have swim trunks and goes in his jeans he was wearing at The Sandlot.

A telephone pole seen behind Wendy Peffercorn at the pool only has wires attached to one side of the top. I don't know if this was a mistake or just normal design.

The iconic line "You're killing me, smalls." was improvised by the young actors.

I am pretty sure that you've watched The Sandlot, maybe in a theater near you or on the small screen, but probably not many of the small details have taken your attention. Most of the previous facts are hidden for some reason, but still, there is plenty of randomly forgetten stuff that makes the movie unique and interesting. The more you know, the more fascinated you'll be about The Sandlot and will watch it online, download or stream it again and again.
