* A ''FreaksAndGeeks'' episode has Bill urging Coach Fredricks to put him and his fellow geeks on the gym-class baseball team. They get their wish...and find their side getting shelled before the first inning is over.

* In ''{{Eyeshield 21}}'', the Devil Bats play against the Yuuhi Guts during the Fall Tournament, only to find the coach has replaced the regular line-up with ringers from the other sports teams at Yuuhi High School. After the Devil Bats manage to gain a strong lead anyway, the coach reluctantly sends in the regular lineup, who fail to make a comeback, but still put up a good fight (this is even more pronounced in the manga, when it's the regulars who score Yuuhi's only touchdown against Deimon instead of the ringers).

* Averted in Game 5 of the 2015 World Series. New York Mets starting pitcher Matt Harvey seemed to be on his way to one of the greatest postseason pitching performances of all time, pitching eight shutout innings against the Kansas City Royals. Harvey argued with manager Terry Collins to be allowed to finish the game, even though he had passed the 100-pitch mark. Upon coming back out for the ninth, Harvey promptly gave up a leadoff walk to Royals outfielder Lorzeno Cain. Harvey was then pulled after giving up a double to infielder Eric Hosmer, which scored Cain. Hosmer scored the tying run, and sent the game in to extra innings. The Royals then put up five runs in the twelfth, and then held on to win the game, and since they had already won three of the previous four games, they won the series.

* How's this for an example? During the Naval Academy's first game of the 2016 [[UsefulNotes/CollegiateAmericanFootball college football]] season; Midshipmen quarterback Tago Henry was injured late in the 1st half; forcing Navy to pull Malcolm Perry, a backup who had not dressed due to an illness, [[http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000695106/article/navy-pulls-qb-malcolm-perry-out-of-stands-in-win out of the stands]]. Perry would play during the game; while the Midshipmen finished with a [[CurbStompBattle 52-16 win]] over Fordham.

* In the WesternAnimation/{{Goofy}} short "Double Dribble", the shortest member of a basketball team (and by shortest we mean he's knee-high to the rest of the team) keeps hoping to be called in to play, but the coach keeps calling to other players. By the last quarter, all the other alternates have been eliminated, and the short player is the only one left. He wins almost by accident, when an opponent trips on his laces and falls through the floor, a board catapulting him, ball and all, through the hoop.

* AustralianRulesFootball: In the 1970 VFL Grand Final, with Carlton 44 points down at half time, coach Ron Barassi brought Ted Hopkins on, who proceeded to rip Collingwood to shreds. Afterwards, Hopkins realised he could never do anything to top his achievements in that game, and retired.

** Similarly, Aaron Rodgers played very little in the three seasons he spent as Favre's backup. During his first season as starter, and despite a losing record, he passed for over 4,000 yards. He would go on to win the Superbowl two seasons later and have perhaps the greatest season for any quarterback a year after that.

* ''{{Rudy}}'' is an interesting example. The titular underdog begs to play in the big game so he can prove to his family that he's on the team. His never-give up attitude having been such an inspiration to the team, they go out of their way to get a large enough lead so that he can make the final play without any risk. And then Rudy gets the sack anyway.
* ''{{Eyeshield 21}}''. Panther (and the entire NASA Aliens) kneels in front of Coach Apollo, asking to play for the first time. Panther is let in, and ultimately finishes off the Devil Bats. Apollo's own NFL days are a subversion - his coach never gave him the chance.

* [[{{Peanuts}} Charlie Brown]] is an avid baseball player, but he can't seem to do anything right, not even hold a 50 run lead with one out left when Peppermint Patty puts him in after he's sold some peanuts. (Once again, the keyword is "somehow": We cut from Patty getting hit by Charlie's 2nd pitch, to her waking up in bed and finding out from Marcie that their losing streak is still intact.)
* In ''{{Foxtrot}}'' Peter begs the coach to put him in, but he's a genuinely terrible player who spends more time practicing theatrics then actually practicing.
