'The Sandlot' cast reunites for 25th anniversary

Renna noted that that actor Michael Vitar, who portrayed Benny "The Jet" Rodriguez, was absent from the reunion.

Marty York, who played lil' Alan "Yeah-Yeah" McClennan, got big and buff!

And the original cast of The Sandlot commemorated the 25th anniversary of their fan-favorite flick back on the baseball field during a segment for the Today Show aired on Thursday morning.

It's been 25 years and the kids from "The Sandlot" are still as beloved as ever.

If you want to see more from the boys of summer, a new collector's edition DVD and Blu-ray of "The Sandlot" has been released in honor of the film's 25th anniversary.

"It's been insane, it definitely gets you in places for free", he joked, eliciting laughs from his co-stars.

Even after more than two decades, the cast proved they're still on top of the game when they played baseball. "I can't walk through a Las Vegas casino without someone yelling, 'Yeah-Yeah'". As for getting into trouble on the set, none of the cast was very forthcoming, but they did all admit that they snuck into a movie theater that was playing Basic Instinct while they were filming.

Patrick Renna, who played Ham, said he showed the film to his son for the first time, but "he's really big on 'Moana, '" unfortunately.

When asked what their children think of their work on The Sandlot, Chaucey Leopardi, who played "Squints", said his own teen daughter "thinks I'm just kind of a dork". But rest were mostly split between wanting to see LeBron come to L.A. and Kobe make a comeback.
