The Benchwarmers 30-Second Summary

In The Benchwarmers, Landscaper, Gus Matthews, and paperboy, Clark Reedy, rescue a boy named Nelson from bullies on a baseball field. Clark tells Gus that he was always on the bench as a kid because of his lack of athleticism. Gus decides that he, Clark, and their friend Richie, who’s also athletically awkward, are going to play a game of pickup. While Clark and Rickie are terrible at baseball, Gus excels at it. Gus challenges the bullies to a game when they return to reclaim their field, and the trio easily beats them.

The wins gives Clark and Richie much needed confidence, and the two visit a sports store to purchase new gloves. Their childhood bully, Brad, manages the store, and he challenges them to a game of baseball. Gus, Clark, and Richie defeat Brad’s team handily.

The wins attract the attention of Nelson’s billionaire father, Mel. He sponsors these Benchwarmers in a series of games against all the bully ball clubs in state. The winner of this “tournament” gets exclusive use of a new multimillion-dollar baseball park Mel builds in 24 hours time.
