The Milwaukee Brewers dropped a super cool recreation of a scene from the hit movie “The Sandlot” late Sunday night.
“The Sandlot” is one of the greatest kids sports movies ever made, and I’m pretty sure every guy in America under the age of 50 has seen it at least once.
Personally, I haven’t seen the movie in probably over a decade, which is way too long. The Brewers shot-for-shot recreation has me thinking that I need to brush up again.

You have to just love this video from the Brewers. “The Sandlot” plays a huge part in the culture of baseball, and for great reason. It’s about a ragtag group of kids in a coming of age story that includes James Earl Jones. What’s not to love and support?
I’m not even the biggest baseball fan out here on the streets. Sure, I’ll go to the game to have a few beers, but I’m not going to sit down to watch hours of it on my television.
Even so, “The Sandlot” and the Brewers recreation are both awesome. Job well done by everybody involved.
