A trio of guys try and make up for missed opportunities in childhood by forming a three-player baseball team to compete against standard little league squads.

Gus is a landscaper, who, along with his newspaper deliveryman pal Clarke, comes upon a hapless group of kids being picked on by a bully baseball squad on the sandlot.

When one member of the squad delivers a non-culinary "beef stew" to one of weaklings, the two adults intervene.

Gus challenges the tough Little Leaguers to a scrimmage, and Clarke and his other uber-nerdy and decidedly nonathletic friend, video store clerk Richie, are recruited--and the eponymous Benchwarmers are formed.

Soon, news of the three sissy men versus the nine jocks-in-training spreads and comes to the attention of billionaire geek, Mel.

With Mel's help, a state-wide tournament is created allowing any youth baseball team the chance to knock off the Benchwarmers.
