It's fun to show our kids movies from our younger days, and this Michael "Squints" Palledorous costume, inspired by the movie "The Sandlot," is a fantastic reason to watch the 1990s baseball film with your kids this Halloween.

TODAY Parenting Team Contributor Chasing Babies & Dreams shared this cute costume idea on the TODAY Parenting Team, describing "The Sandlot" as "one of the greatest movies ever."

"Summer. Baseball. Friendship," she wrote. "It's filled with the essence of youth and memories from a simple childhood — the kind of world I hope my son grows up in!"

So naturally, this creative mom went to work, creating an adorable Squints costume for her son.

"The memorable character from the movie is easy to remake," she wrote in the post. "All you need are a pair of cheap sunglasses — and pop the lenses out."

We call this costume a home run!
