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.

'''Scott Smalls'''\\
Scott Smalls (played by Tom Guiry), simply called "Smalls" by the other kids, is a boy who moved to suburban Los Angeles in 1961 with his mother and his new step-father. The crux of the first half of the film is him trying to fit in with the kids of his new neighborhood. Taken under the wing of Benny, he finds a new passion for baseball. It is his mistake of unwittingly using a ball signed by Babe Ruth (which belonged to his step-father) that drives the second half of the film.
