Reese in Backyard Baseball 2003
Reese Worthington is one of the 30 playable kids in Backyard Baseball. He is known for his surprising athletic abilities despite having asthma and grass allergies. Also, he is not a nerd. Stop stereotyping.
Why Reese, out of all the kids?
Reese is one of the more prevalent kids in the marketing of the series, remaining on as many kids were dropped and appearing in a whole bunch of supplementary material for the series. He also appears in Backyard Skateboarding and was actually moved from a regular character to a boss in the GOTY edition. He is also a fairly expressive character and one who would logically translate well to Smash.
What can Reese do?
Reese can play in a whole bunch of various sports, including baseball, football, hockey, soccer, basketball, and even skateboarding. His moveset is sports-based and will be posted later.
Reveal Trailer Concept
The trailer starts with a normal game of baseball, featuring many of the beloved characters from the series, while a mysterious figure with a hoodie on is watching the game from a distance. Eventually, a Smash invitation falls into the stadium, and everyone starts beating each other up for the invitation. Eventually, Pablo Sanchez comes out on top, and as he is about to be announced as the final Smash Ultimate DLC character he is suddenly struck in the face by a baseball and falls to the ground where he passes out. When he finally wakes up he sees the figure in the hoodie, who was also responsible for hitting him in the head with a baseball. The figure then rips off the hoodie, revealing himself as none other than Reese Worthington. Reese then grabs the invite off the ground, gets his bat in an action pose as the tagline "Reese Batters Up!" appears on screen.
