If you were a ’90s kid, The Sandlot probably holds a special place in your heart. The coming-of-age baseball movie didn’t make a big splash at the box office when it released on April 7, 1993. But in the 28 years since its release, it’s become a cult classic.
Here’s a look at the cast of The Sandlot now and what they’ve been doing in the past 28 years.
Patrick Renna (“Hamilton ‘Ham’ Porter”)
Patrick Renna, 42, played Ham Porter, the catcher with the memorable catchphrase, “You’re killing me, Smalls.” He was a prolific child actor, making guest appearances on shows like Salute Your Shorts, Home Improvement, and Boy Meets World. You might also remember him from films like Son-in-Law and The Big Green. Renna has continued to act over the years, and most recently appeared in the guest role of Cupcake on GLOW.
Mike Vitar (“Benny Rodriguez”)
Fans will remember Mike Vitar, 42, for his role as Benny “The Jet” Rodriguez. After The Sandlot, his most notable role was as Luis in D2: The Mighty Ducks and its sequel. He stopped acting in 1997. Since 2002, he’s worked as a firefighter in Los Angeles.
In recent years, Vitar has made headlines for a 2015 arrest. He pleaded no contest to misdemeanor battery, and received three years of probation and 90 days of community service.
Tom Guiry (“Scotty Smalls”)
Tom Guiry, 39, played The Sandlot‘s lead character of Scotty Smalls. He has continued to act over the years, including roles in Black Hawk Down, Mystic River, and The Revenant.

Wade, which featured another ’90s star, Stacey Dash.
Like his co-star Vitar, Guiry has also had a run-in with the law. In 2013, he was arrested for allegedly head-butting a police officer after being told he was too drunk to board a flight at a Texas airport.
