Ted Whitfield Catches the Essence of Comedy

Like Ricky Bobby from Talladega Nights, Ted Whitfield brings laughs, wits, and stupidity to a sport – the sport of Wiffleball.  Whether one is familiar or not with this two person, plastic ball and bat sport, the humor that this film exudes will cramp your laughing muscles.

Set in a trailer park village, Ted is rising to the top quickly with the help of his best friend Willie “High-Sox”.  Breaking record after record and receiving paid sponsorship from the local manure manufacturer, Ted’s fame may just be getting the best of him.  He is on a mission to never be beaten, knocking down anyone in his path, even himself.
From attempting to break a plastic bat to resorting to selling plastic kid pools and talking to imaginary ghosts,  THE WIFFLER hits a home run with audiences worldwide.
