Suggested correction: You can see everyone is pretty dumbfounded by what Squints is doing, and Wendy leans in to give him another breath before anyone has the opportunity to tell her he's awake.

Revealing mistake: When the boys' rival team challenges them, all the boys throw their gloves down, except Yeah-Yeah. When they all go to pick them back up, Yeah-Yeah has to pretend to pick it up.

Trivia: According to Patrick Renna, every day of filming was between 95 and 100°, except for the day they filmed the swimming pool scene, in which the temperature was only 60°. That is why Squints is shivering when he's about to jump into the deep end.

Question: At the end of the movie, it shows Benny managing to steal home, being called safe, the catcher arguing that Benny was out and the umpire saying Benny was safe. In slow motion, it shows the catcher catching the ball and tagging Benny as he slides into home so why wasn't Benny called out?

Answer: The umpire got the call wrong in that case. It happens all the time in real life. It wasn't allowed back then, but now Major League Baseball and other sports leagues will use instant replay to make sure they get close calls right.

Answer: The film shows Benny beating the tag. Although the ball gets there before Benny, the catcher tags Benny a split second after his hand touches home plate.
