It's not every day that we get to remember Scotty Smalls, Benny "The Jet" Rodriquez, and, yes, Squints. Thankfully, today is one of those very rare days. Today the ultimate movie of our childhood-- The Sandlot --celebrates it's 20th anniversary with the release of a special anniversary blu-ray DVD. Yes, this definitely makes us feel old, but we decided to ignore that fact, and focus on what's most important: This movie rules.
More than just a baseball flick for Little Leaguers, director David M. Evan's flick is about friendship, big scary dogs, first crushes (hello, Wendy Peffercorn), Babe Ruth, stepdads, and a summer of a lifetime. Plus, James Earl Jones is in it. So what better way to celebrate of the film's birthday than to award it with NYLON's top honor: Private Icon? (We're not the only ones who are excited-- PF Flyers just released a special edition The Sandlot shoe, as featured below). And don't worry, we didn't include any bathing suits--we know Squints can't swim.
