Twenty-five years after the iconic coming-of-age movie hit theaters, the cast of The Sandlot reunited on a baseball diamond this week for—you guessed it—some baseball.

The reunion was really for a Today Show interview that aired on NBC this morning, but Marty York, Victor DiMattia (Timmy Timmons), Grant Gelt (Bertram Grover Weeks), Tom Guiry (Scotty Smalls), Chauncey Leopardi (Michael “Squints” Palledorous), Shane Obedzinski (Tommy “Repeat” Timmons), Brandon Quinton Adams (Kenny DeNunez), and Patrick Renna (Hamilton “Ham” Porter) were all in attendance. Only Mike Vitar (Benny “The Jet” Rodriguez) was missing.

The 1993 movie was a childhood touchstone for a lot of today’s pro athletes—like Kevin Durant, who uses a screenshot of “Ham” as his Twitter profile pic.

“I am Kevin Durant; it’s a little known fact,” Renna joked on Today. “And I’ll ball you up!”
