Cast of 'The Sandlot' reunites and takes the field 25 years later

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

This morning on NBC's Today, Gadi Schwartz sat down with The Sandlot cast to celebrate the film's 25th anniversary.

The Sandlot director and narrator David Mickey Evans talked about the long-lasting appeal of the movie after it had been brought up that Major League Baseball players act out the movie and still quote dialogue on a daily basis.

"It's been insane. It definitely gets you in places for free", York told NBC's Gadi Schwartz about being recognized from the film. However, if you put the question to fans who grew up in the 90s, chances are they're going to tell you it's The Sandlot.

"It's been insane, it definitely gets you in places for free", he joked, eliciting laughs from his co-stars. The actors who played stars such as "Bertram", "DeNunez", "Ham", "Repeat", "Smalls", "Squints", "Timmy" and "Yeah-Yeah" were on hand, but "Benny "the Jet" Rodriguez" was a no-show.
