The Rookie

Factual error: In the scene where Morris is pitching in Durham, they are obviously not at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park because the stadium has a giant blue wall in left field, similar to Fenway's Green Monster.

Jim Morris Sr.: Your grandfather once told me it was ok to think about what you want to do until it was time to start doing what you were meant to do.

Trivia: When Jim is making his debut at The Balkpark in Arlington, the Devil Rays are wearing their current jerseys. Their current jerseys came out in the 2000 or 2001 season. The movie was shot in 1999 when they had different jerseys. However, at the end where the shot is of Jim's D- Ray's jersey is hanging at the high school, it is a 1999 hat and a 2000 or 2001 jersey. Tampa Bay never had that jersey combo.
