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.

In their very first game, Gus says that the score is 17 to nothing. This should not be possible. Richie and Clark are first to bat, and each get 1 out. Then Gus is up and scores a run. Richie or Clark have to be up to bat after Gus, so they would score the third out, therefore causing the end of the inning. In innings 3, 5, 7, & 9 Gus would get two at bats. Assuming the game is 9 innings and the Benchwarmers are the visiting team and assuming neither Richie nor Clark reach base the most runs they could score would be 13. See more »
Really funny movie, the whole theater was cracking up
This movie had a lot of the typical humor you'd expect from the three leads. May be typecasting John Heder a bit too much but he's good at the part he plays. Actually has a sweet story line. I went with my boyfriend and another couple and both the guys and the girls really enjoyed the movie and neither side was really offended by the humor. Be warned however, there are three different places in the movie where vomiting is involved(just for the funny effect it has on a situation). For anyone with a weak stomach, look away! I actually was pleasantly surprised with the minimal swearing in this movie when you consider who the cast is and who produced it (Happy Madison). Anyway, I thought it was a really good movie and would definitely recommend it.
