Grant Gelt — ‘Sandlot’ Kids Then And Now
Then: Grant Gelt played second baseman Bertram Grover Weeks who, despite his somewhat dorky looks, was the team’s tobacco-chewing, counter-culture loving rebel. ‘The Sandlot’ came in the middle of fairly busy career for Gelt. Among his other credits were movies like the Steven Seagal classic ‘Marked for Death’ and TV shows such as ‘Boy Meets World,’ ‘Life Goes On’ and ‘Northern Exposure.’
Now: Gelt stopped acting by 1999, but is still very much in showbiz. After high school Gelt decided that he wanted to managed rock bands, and these days the 32-year-old has a management company which works with Velvet Hammer, Mudvayne, System of a Down, Deftones and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. We think Bertram would be proud.
