Richard “Richie” Rich Jr. is the world’s wealthiest kid, the son of billionaire businessman and philanthropist Richard Rich, Sr.. Richie has been raised with the best of everything money can buy, but with only loyal butler Herbert Cadbury as a companion, he lacks any friends his own age. But he thinks he might get his chance at a dedication to the reopening of United Tool, a factory Richard recently acquired (intending to modernize thefactory and give it away to the workers as a token of goodwill). There Richie encounters a group of sandlot kids playing baseball. Unfortunately, before he is able to talk to them, the too-strict head of security, Ferguson, stops Richie and sharply pulls him away.
