A group of Milwaukee Brewers players acted out a near shot-for-shot remake of a scene from "The Sandlot" in honor of the baseball film's 25th anniversary. 

The video, which features Brewers catcher Stephen Vogt playing Hamilton "Ham" Porter, was posted Sunday night on the team's official Twitter account. 

Vogt, recreating the character played by actor Patrick Renna, hits the ball over the outfield fence, prompting jeers from the other players and leading to Brett Phillips, as Scotty Smalls, trying to climb the fence before he's pulled down by the other players. 

In addition to the players, the video also features a cameo by a canine familiar to Brewers fans. Check it out below.

The full cast of Brewers players is as follows:

Christian Yelich − Benny "The Jet" Rodriguez (Originally played by Mike Vitar)

Brett Phillips − Scotty Smalls (Tom Guiry)

Stephen Vogt − Hamilton "Ham" Porter (Patrick Renna)

Eric Sogard − Michael "Squints" Palledorous (Chauncey Leopardi) 

Hernan Perez − Alan "Yeah-Yeah" McClennan (Marty York)

Jeremy Jeffress − Kenny DeNunez (Brandon Adams)

Josh Hader − Bertram Grover Weeks (Grant Gelt)

Chase Anderson − Tommy "Repeat" Timmons (Shane Obedzinski) 

Jett Bandy − Timmy Timmons (Victor DiMattia)

Watch the video below to compare the Brewers' performance with the scene from the original film, which was released in theaters in the United States on April 7, 1993. 

On Monday afternoon, Brewers pitcher Tim Dillard shared a video of himself pretending to read the film's epilogue − narrated in the original by the film's writer and director, David M. Evans − to a group of teammates sitting on the floor around him.

Check out Dillard's video below.
