* Smalls' stepdad went easy on him for getting a replacement for his ruined Babe Ruth baseball. The actor who played him, Actor/DenisLeary, is actually a Red Sox fan.

** It all makes sense when you recall that the film is the [[NostalgicNarrator nostalgic memories]] of Benny's best friend and Benny was the reason he became part of the gang. Of course he's going to view him through a NostalgiaFilter. Of course, the ending shows that Adult!Benny really is a NiceGuy and a great ball player; these things are why Scotty buys into his own nostalgia.

** But judging by the ending of the movie, when present-day Smalls (as the LA Dodgers play-by-play announcer) gives present-day Benny (a player for the team) a thumbs up [[spoiler: when Benny steals home,]] Benny returns the gesture. So maybe Benny really was the nice guy Scott makes him out to be in his memories.

** Definitely the best baseball player on the team
** The only one that the team's JerkJock rival respects
** Baseball feats include hitting the ball straight into Scotty's glove and hitting a ball so hard that it breaks
** Very handsome
** Very nice and the only one on the team to welcome the dorky Scotty and defends him when the others protest
** Becomes the big hero at the end when he steals the baseball from the beast and then outruns him across town
