* NaiveNewcomer: Not just to the neigbhorhood but to the game itself. He doesn't even know who Babe Ruth is, which leads to the issue in the climax of the film.

* StopHavingFunGuys: The ''only'' fun activity he tolerates other than playing baseball is going to the pool, and even then he kicks up a fuss.

!!!Hercules
Hercules is an English Mastiff owned by Mr. Mertle, a blind elderly black man who lives behind the Sandlot where the kids play baseball. Known by the kids as "The Beast", he greedily hoards any ball hit over the fence. Although the kids think he's mean and evil, it turns out he just likes keeping the balls and is defensive about them. Really, he turns out to be a gentle giant, and at the end he's considered their mascot.

Mr. Mertle (played by Creator/JamesEarlJones), his owner, is actually a former Negro Leagues baseball player, whose blindness cut his career short. He named his dog in honor of his former teammate Creator/BabeRuth (who's considered the "Hercules of Baseball"). He befriends Smalls at the end. Smalls says at the end that Hercules lived to be 199 dog years old (about 28 1/2 years old).

Squints (played by Chauncey Leopardi) looks like a nerd, but is also a good baseball player and a hammy storyteller. He is also a bit of a lech, having a major crush on an older local girl, Wendy Peffercorn. He largely drives the myths surrounding The Beast. In the epilogue, he's revealed to have bought the local pharmacy, and married Wendy. They have ''nine'' children (but what else are you going to do when your wife is Marley Shelton?!)

* SupportingProtagonist: While it's his story, Benny's the one who gets the most spotlight and is treated as TheHero. Considering Scott's admiration of Benny, it's only fitting.
