'Squints' and 'Ham' actors still love 'The Sandlot,' still love baseball

Chauncey Leopardi and Patrick Renna, who played Squints and Ham, respectively, in the classic 1993 baseball film The Sandlot, were at Target Field on Sunday to commemorate the film's 20th anniversary.

The two are older now (Leopardi is now the owner of a number of arm tattoos, for instance) but their enthusiasm for the film -- both the experience of making it and the finished product -- doesn't seem to have waned a bit.
