Sandlot's 25th anniversary reunion without Wendy Peffercorn... is not a reunion

Sandlot's 25th anniversary reunion
It's pretty cool that all these guys got together 25 years later... but they needed Marley Shelton!
Naturally, I missed it, but the Sandlot reunion seems to have been the brainchild of the Today Show who assisted with the reunion. It seems the reunited cast did the reunion tour with a variety of news and entertainment outlets.

I discovered it through a batch of Twitter posts which led to a reenactment of the "pool scene" by The Chive. recalling that scene makes me wonder where Marley Shelton was during this event. Wendy Peffercorn was certainly a significant role in this 1993 classic! It makes me think about other reunions I'd like to see... and few I could do without ;)

If you feel like reminiscing, check out the new collector's edition DVD and Blu-ray of "The Sandlot", released in honor of the film's 25th anniversary.

The Chive's Sandlot pool scene reenactment

Popular website, The Chive, remade the "pool scene" and it's a pretty convincing reenactment with a convincing "Wendy". But you may want to overlook the middle-aged guys making up the rest of the cast. But they did a nice tribute to a scene that almost rivals Phoebe Cates in Fast Times At Ridgemont High.
