Summary, etc.:
Three guys spent their youth bearing the wrath of schoolyard bullies. They weren't tall, cool, and athletic, so they often got picked on by those who were. But when Gus convinces his two friends Richie and Clark to take some batting practice on a nearby Little League baseball field for old times sake, the three end up challenging a team of eleven-year-olds for the right to play on the field. Gus, often picked on because he was short, is nonetheless a stellar ballplayer, and he single-handedly defeats the other team. When word gets out, neighborhood billionaire Mel decides to bankroll a cross-state tour for "The Benchwarmers" where they'll challenge the meanest little league teams around, with the eventual winner taking possession of a brand-new, state-of-the-art Little League field. Mel, once a benchwarmer himself, hopes The Benchwarmers can give his own son and nerds everywhere hope for redemption as the victories pile up and the fame of the players spreads through chatrooms and podcasts everywhere.
