It's safe to say that we can all agree that there are few sports movies on the planet as sacred as The Sandlot. Combining humor, nostalgia, and The Colossus of Clout, not many baseball flicks have been able to win over audiences since.
With the 25th anniversary of The Sandlot coming up on April 1, the Milwaukee Brewers decided to recreate one of the most iconic scenes from the movie and we've got to say, they nailed it! Now, we know this isn't the first time an MLB team has channeled their-inner Sandlot — The Yankees did it back in 2015 — but we think it might just be the best. Take a look and decide for yourselves.

Turns out, professional baseball players make pretty decent actors. Who would have guessed? For those of you not too keen on the Milwaukee Brewers' roster, no worries, we've got you covered. Stephen Vogt plays the role of Hamilton 'Ham' Porter who hits the infamous homer that begins the battle with "The Beast". Brett Phillips plays Scotty Smalls, who, we think had the best performance of the whole video.
The other players involved are as followed: Christian Yelich, Eric Sogard, Hernan Perez, Jeremy Jeffress, Josh Hader, Chase Anderson and Jett Bandy. Now you know who to root for this coming baseball season. Let's just hope their skills on the field are a solid as their sense of humor and comedic timing.
