Actors from ‘The Sandlot’ hit the big leagues, but still look like kids 20 years later

Classic coming-of-age baseball flick "The Sandlot" turned 20 last month — which we documented at length on the anniversary date. The celebrations continue into the summer, however. Like this Sunday, when Target Field will screen the film after that day's game Boston Red Sox-Minnesota Twins game.

To get people hyped, a couple of "Sandlot" actors visited the Twins and Red Sox before Friday's game. But get this: Chauncey Leopardi, who played kiss-stealing Michael "Squints" Palledorous, and Patrick Renna, who played wise-cracking Ham Porter, still look like kids next to big leaguers. Even though they're now 31 and 34, respectively.

Brian Duensing of the Twins tweeted the picture above, while Renna himself Instagrammed these pics with David Ortiz, Dustin Pedroia and Will Middlebrooks of the Red Sox.

For comparison's sake:

It's worth noting that Will Middlebrooks was 4 when "The Sandlot" came out. Let's all go feel old now.

Baseball is back. Don't miss anything.
