The Bad News Bears in Breaking Training

Plot hole: The game in Houston is only 4 innings. If it almost got called after 2 innings, it's obviously pressed for time. Although called safe for the win, if Kelly was called out at home plate at the end of the 4th, the game would have ended in a tie. No extra innings would be allowed for sure this time due to time factor, so how would a winning team be determined to play in Japan?

Suggested correction: This isn't a plot hole, it's a question. Asking "what would have happened if..." isn't a valid plot hole. The writers had no need to explain "what if" scenarios since they never would have occurred. However, to answer your question with plausible answers; 1) The Bears HAD to win in order to go to Japan and thus a tie would mean the Toros played Japan (like a champion retaining his title after a draw in a title fight). Or 2) They played a 2nd game at a later time.


Continuity mistake: When Manning first writes the word "assume" on the blackboard, it is written down towards the left center of the board. Then later in the scene, the word switches position to the upper left part of the board, then eventually back to the left center again.
