There are tons of iconic characters from The Sandlot, one of whom is Wendy Peffercorn. She’s that classic cutie who rocked the red lifeguard bathing suit and made Squints a very lucky dude when they locked lips. While Wendy may not have originally been clued in to what was happening, clearly she liked it because Squints was the lucky man who scored the neighborhood babe in the end.
Because much like these tweets prove, loving Wendy Peffercorn is never going out of style.

Alright. We’re going to come right out and say it. Wendy was thicc. You know, that gooooood thicc with two Cs. Hot enough to impress the boys, but classy enough to take home to mom.
A word to our fellow comrades: no woman is ever out of your league. And if you truly think she is, that’s when it’s time to pretend you’re drowning. (Yeah, we said it.)
Find someone who looks at you the same way Squints looks at Wendy Peffercorn.— Alexander Smith (@ASmithTxV2112) January 14, 2019
If it ain’t true love, we don’t want it. And true love looks at Wendy the way Squints does.
Wendy Peffercorn was my first love.— Daniel Gonzalez (@dannyboyy_024) January 14, 2019
Join the club, take a number, and get in line homeboy.
Wooooaaahhh....... Wendy Peffercorn— Brazy Bhris (@ChrisEsquivel11) September 15, 2015
“Wooooaaahhh” is right. That’s what we’ve been saying since ’93.
watching Sandlot and i’m just thinking of how big of a would iiiiiii Wendy Peffercorn is— Steve Massaro (@steve_massaro14) January 14, 2019
Wendy Peffercorn puts the wood in the “would I.”
(Don’t deny it. You wouldn’t still be reading this if you disagreed.)
Was at the beach with my nephew. Tried to teach him to run to cute Lifegaurds and say, "Will you be my Wendy Peffercorn?" No luck, yet.— Patrick Neville (@Patrick_Neville) June 27, 2015
It’s best to start ‘em young, right?
If Squints can score a chick, any young kid with four eyes and a (wet) dream can.
The lifeguard is cute. So it's only logical for me to go drown for a couple minutes. Wendy Peffercorn style.— Zach Fury (@ZachFury0) August 2, 2015
Squints has been inspiring young lads to quite literally get their dicks wet for over 20 years now. We like to call it the Peffercorn Effect.
happy 25th anniversary to one of my top 5 movies. a special thank u to Wendy Peffercorn for being an icon and teaching me to actually wear sunscreen while guarding. #TheSandlot pic.twitter.com/ytA0iYP5dB— Abby Neill (@abbyneill_) April 7, 2018
Not to mention, thanks to The Sandlot, Wendy Peffercorn has been informing American youth about the importance of sun protection for over two decades.
“And every summer there she is oiling and lotioning, lotioning and oiling…”
Today at work a 7 year old asked me out on a date. I am a step closer to completing my transformation into lifeguard icon; Wendy Peffercorn pic.twitter.com/7dtqWjRNXu— Maddie Parker (@MaddieeParkerr) December 29, 2017
There Wendy goes, inspiring American youth again. We think this means that Marley Shelton, the Wendy Peffercorn actress, deserves a Noble Peace Prize or something.
Quick, somebody go start a petition.
Ah, the 90's, *sigh*, when Wendy Peffercorn stole Squints heart along with all of ours.. pic.twitter.com/1TjDzqhhh1— IslandBum (@VSutowski) January 11, 2019
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. After all, this whole blog is about how much we love Wendy fucking Peffercorn.
Some of y’all grew up never having a childhood crush on Wendy Peffercorn and it shows— Robbie Leto (@That_Kid_Leto) January 15, 2019
Simply put, what’s life without a crush on Wendy Peffercorn? It’s meaningless, nonexistent, and empty. Peffercorn was pure perfection. Anyone who thinks otherwise has our permission to take a long walk off a short pier.
And if you’re in need of a laugh, you should check out our cheeky reenactment of the infamous Wendy Peffercorn scene. It’s pretty funny if you ask us. (And no, of course we’re not biased.)
A wise man once said, “heroes get remembered, but legends never die.” That wise man was Babe Ruth, and we can’t help but think that the legend in question is Wendy Peffercorn.
