The Sandlot is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, and incredibly the ’90s coming-of-age comedy is as popular as ever, as it continues to resonate with each new generation. The film is also infinitely quotable, with lines such as “Legends never die” and “You’re killing me, Smalls!” The latter even recently inspired the Evil Genius Beer Company to name a raspberry shandy after it.
There has also been no shortage of merchandise featuring the “You’re killing me, Smalls!” quote over the years, such as a T-shirt that was being worn by some dude walking through Manhattan on Thursday, who just happened to cross paths with Tom Guiry (Scotty Smalls) and Patrick Renna (Hamilton “Ham” Porter) who are apparently still buds after all these years.
“Said nice shirt to this dude walking by us and he had no idea what we were talking about,” Renna captioned a photo of the encounter on Twitter. “Thought I would capture the moment.”
Come on though, really? The guy is still a spitting image of himself a quarter of a century later. Suffice to say, others expressed similar sentiments.
For what it’s worth — although most of the cast of The Sandlot has since gotten out of the business, Renna can currently be seen in season two of Glow, and Guiry appeared in last year’s Brawl in Cell Block 99 and Wonder Wheel.
