Chauncey Leopardi: 'The Sandlot's' Squints Files For Divorce

Posted: Updated:

Chauncey Leopardi -- the actor who played Squints in the 1993 coming-of-age baseball movie "The Sandlot" -- is getting a divorce.

According to TMZ, Leopardi and his wife Stefani separated in 2003, but his estranged wife officially filed the divorce documents last month. Sunday marked the 20th anniversary of the film's original release. In perhaps one of Leopardi's most famous scenes, Squints jumps off the diving board at the local pool -- even though he can't swim -- so that he can get mouth-to-mouth from the beautiful lifeguard, Wendy Peffercorn (see clip below).
