Corrected entry: When Squints goes into the pool in the scene his glasses are in one hand but when they get him out his glasses are in the other hand.
Corrected entry: During the chase scene, the baseball in Benny's hand keeps changing from left to right. He wouldn't have a reason for switching the ball while running from a dog.
Corrected entry: After Smalls hits his home run one of the kids throws his glove behind him when he is trying to take it off and a kid behind him catches with a surprised look on his face. You may have to slow the film down to see this.

Corrected entry: Before Wendy (lifeguard) jumps off her tower to rescue "Squints", she takes off her sunglasses and throws them to the floor.

Corrected entry: When Scott Smalls's dad leaves for Chicago, Scott asks him where he was going. Bill answers that he was going to Chicago on a week long business trip. Then, when Scott hits his homerun ball, and Benny asks him when his old man was getting home, Scott says that he doesn't know when Bill was getting home.
Corrected entry: When the boys are playing baseball against the other team in the middle of the movie, they show everyone hitting the ball with a wooden bat. But if you listen carefully, you can tell that the sound of the ball hitting the bat was made by a metal bat, not wooden. A metal bat makes the "clinging" sound that is in the film.
Corrected entry: At the end, Benny is playing for the Dodgers and stealing home. As he starts his slide, he is going in feet first. An instant later, the catcher is trying to tag him out and Benny is sliding in hands first.
