This summer marks the twentieth anniversary of one of the greatest movies of all time -- The Sandlot.
The Sandlot was filmed in the Salt Lake area, and tells the story of a group of boys whose love of baseball follows them through their early years, and ties them together, in a tight grip of friendship.
Except for the baseball angle, this is my story.
I grew up in a neighborhood of good friends, bonded by adventure and imagination and Saturday afternoons, and long summer evenings.
The Sandlot is not how my childhood was, but it is how I remember it.
