Factual error: In the lounge scene after Mickey leaves the table, Whitey says that Mickey was 18 years old when he came up to the Yankees in 1951. Mickey was born in October of 1931, and that would have made him 19-years-old in the spring of 1951.

Factual error: In the scene where Roger Maris, Bob Cerv and Mickey Mantle are watching 'The Andy Griffith Show', they show the beginning and play the theme song, but it's in colour and you don't hear the announcer's voice. At the time, 'The Andy Griffith Show' was filmed in black and white and there was an announcer until the mid-60s.

Add time

Factual error: There is a scene where a fan throws a set at Maris. This did not happen in 1961, but during the 1962 season. It was during the 1962 season that Yankee fans turned on Maris.
