Happy 23rd birthday, 'The Sandlot'! See what the team looks like today

Top 10 Extreme Sports Movies

When it comes to sports movies, "The Sandlot" is near the top of the list -- especially to the millennial crowd.

On April 7, 1993, the movie was released in theaters, making Thursday its 23rd birthday. Yes, not only is "The Sandlot'" old enough to drink, but it has been for some time. And the boys from the team? Grown adults. And no, sadly, none of them reached the Majors -- not even Benny the Jet.

Take a look at the stars from American's favorite little league lineup in the gallery below.
