Rookie of the Year

Revealing mistake: At the end of the decisive game, the bad guy hits a deep foul ball. During that hit, they show the ball against a black background. If you look very closely at the bottom of the screen, you can see a hand throwing the ball.

Revealing mistake: When the boys take the boat out, almost every shot shows smoke coming from the rear. If you look closely, the smoke isn't coming from the motor but next to it.

Suggested correction: The smoke is coming from the motor, escaping it through the side, which makes it appear to be coming from elsewhere.

Factual error: For a baseball movie, you would think they would have known the rules of the game better. There is a scene in which Henry uses the "hidden ball trick" to pick a runner off of first base. He stands on the rubber on the mound with only the rosin bag in his hand while the first basemen holds the ball. It is a violation for him to stand on the rubber or straddle it without the ball in his hand and is called a "balk". Technically the runner should have been awarded second base.

Cliff Murdoch: I just figured out why the Cubs lose every year. They've got more talent in the stands than they do in the field.

Question: When the Cubs are playing the last game against the Mets, the last batter that Henry faces is Hedo. However, Henry has pitched three innings and only nine batters, so if you back up to the last batter Chet faced in the 6th inning, it wasn't Hedo. So how was he the 9th batter Henry faced?

Answer: Since we never see Hedo on the field, it's certainly possible that he's kept solely as a pinch hitter.
