'Sandlot' Cast Reunites on 'Today' in Honor of 25th Anniversary

The gang takes the field together 25 years later

The cast got together in an interview with Today Show to talk about The Sandlot.

Twenty-five years after charming an entire generation of neighborhood rascals, the cast of the coming-of-age baseball classic The Sandlot reunited - on a baseball diamond, of course.

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).

"It's been insane", York says to reporter Gadi Schwartz. Missing from the bunch was Mike Vitar, who played Benny Rodriguez. For York, this meant that he gets to go places for free. "I can't walk through a Las Vegas casino without someone yelling 'Yeah-Yeah!'" York told Today correspondent Gadi Schwartz.

According to director, writer and narrator David Mickey Evans, "The film was made with the same amount of love that people have for it, and it was the greatest summer of our lives". Patrick Renna, a.k.a. Ham, says he wants to see Odell Beckham Jr. go to the Patriots, so he's very bad.

"I think she just thinks I'm kind of a dork", he said.

While the stars never realized their Dodgers dreams in real life, their on-screen team spirit inspired many of today's Major League Baseball greats.

Patrick Renna, who played "Ham", admits that he showed it to his young son, but said "well, he's really big on Moana".
