The issue with the player with the fake birth certificate really happened. Danny Almonte, originally from the Dominican Republic, playing for a US team from New York was found to be too old. He was actually 14, not 12, the cut-off age. He had a forged birth certificate. His team had won their regional competition and were eliminated in the semifinals of the Little League World Series but, as a result of the scandal, the entire team was disqualified, had their records erased and the coach banned for life from Little League baseball.

We've got statistics! I got 30 homeruns!
I got 11 foul ticks!
I got 20 eyes-closed strike outs, 5 broken windshields, and 6 dead birds! I'm freakin' awesome!

Along with Nacho Libre, this has to be one of the worst movies since Street Fighter The Movie. Benchwarmers must have aimed towards being "stupid funny" so much that it lost total contact with what the word stupid and/or funny really means. The actors who took part in this film just took a large drop in their careers. I can understand Napoleon Dynamite (which I thought was equally dumb) has some value in the sense that you can laugh at a loser, but taking it as far as Benchwarmers and just throwing out all respect for yourself is another story. I would never recommend this motion picture to anyone. Instead, I'd give it as a gift to someone I hate, because after watching it, I think you'll lose some sanity. I also noted how it says five nominees...what was it nominated for? Most idiodic catch phrases fitted into a 2 hour long S#!t fest?
