** The animatronics used in many scenes for The Beast don't hold up particularly well. Though in a bit of FridgeBrilliance that may make them work even work ''better'' considering his mythic status among the kids.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Ham is one of the best-remembered characters in the movie, despite having relatively little screen time. It helps that some of the most meme-tastic lines in the film (see MemeticMutation and SignatureScene) are said by him.

* AwesomeMusic: ''Green Onions'' which plays when the sandlot boys have their confrontation with the Little Leaguers.
* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: Forcibly, nonconsensually kissing a girl is an important rite of passage. [[note]]They were "banned from the pool forever that day" but this is a sidenote so the example is still valid. She's even said to have been impressed by it and married him in the epilogue.[[/note]]
