Wendy Peffercorn

In The Sandlot, Wendy Peffercorn (Marley Shelton) works as a lifeguard at the local pool for the summer. The boys can’t keep their eyes off her, with Squints even pretending to need rescue from drowning.


Baywatch focused on the work and personal lives of the LA County Lifeguards. These lifeguards not only dealt with drowning swimmers and shark attacks but also dealt with serial killers and nuclear bombs. The show launched the careers of many actresses like Pamela Anderson and Carmen Electra – their outfits probably had something to do with that too.
