They say legends never die, proven by this reunion of the legendary cast of The Sandlot.

"It's been insane", Marty York, who played Alan "Yeah-Yeah" McClennan. Those present were Marty York (Alan "Yeah Yeah" McClennan), Brandon Quintin Adams (Kenny DeNunez), Tom Guiry (Scotty Smalls), Patrick Renna (Ham Porter), Shane Obedzinski (Timmy Timmons), Chauncey Leopardi (Squints Palledorous), Victor DiMattia (Tommy Repeat), and director David Mickey Evans.

This morning on NBC's Today, Gadi Schwartz sat down with The Sandlot cast to celebrate the film's 25th anniversary.

You can't hear the phrase, "You're killing me, Smalls!" without knowing exactly where it came from.

The Sandlot is a coming-of-age film about a team of boys who play baseball together one summer and find themselves in a serious jam when they lose a baseball signed by Babe Ruth to a massive, ferocious dog known as The Beast. "I can't walk through a Las Vegas casino without someone yelling, 'Yeah-Yeah'". However, if you put the question to fans who grew up in the 90s, chances are they're going to tell you it's The Sandlot.

"It made a big impact on a lot of people's lives", he said.

When asked what their children think of their work on The Sandlot, Chaucey Leopardi, who played "Squints", said his own teen daughter "thinks I'm just kind of a dork".

Patrick Renna, who played Ham, said he showed the film to his son for the first time, but "he's really big on 'Moana, '" unfortunately.
