The 5 Kids on Every '90s Era Little League Team

The Fat Kid at First Base

Back in the '90s, Little League was as much about crushing Pepsis and Fun Dip between innings as it was about baseball. With a Lenny Dykstra-style lipper of Big League Chew and a vicious uppercut swing, the fat kid at first base was downright Ruthian when he got his arms extended on a 45-mph fastball. 

Defensively, that guy was a total liability. He couldn't stretch or pick a short hop, but he wasn't on the team for the way he patrolled the not-so-hot corner. Remember that. He was on the team because he bruised pitchers, peppering the center field fence like a hailstorm of weak shit fastballs all summer long.
