We settle into our seats, the frigid metal benches searing our bottoms as we realize it is very cold tonight. There is a band on the field and our classmates begin to arrive.

In the final game, it’s the Benchwarmers verses the original bully team. However, even though they could win, they allow all the nerdy kids to come down and play baseball, some of them for their first times, and throw off the confines society had placed on their heads.
Athletes can inspire young people to work hard so that their efforts can pay off, but no one is pure and flawless. Greed does take a hold of some players, but they shouldn't be the ones we devote all of our attention to. We should look at the positive things that people do. The media does not go around reporting all of the good things that these people do, just the bad things and their mistakes. They are only human just like the rest of us.
