It's the early 1960's and 5th grader Scotty Smalls has just moved into town with his folks. Kids call him a dork because he can't even throw a baseball. But that changes when the leader of the neighborhood gang recruits him to play on the nearby sandlot field. It's the beginning of a magical summer of baseball, wild adventures, first kisses, and fearsome confrontations with the dreaded beast and its owner who live behind the left field fence.
