Bull Durham

Other mistake: Nuke is having a great game. Crash comes out BEFORE the first pitch to the next batter and instructs him to "throw the next one at the mascot." Nuke does. Crash tells the batter not to dig in because he doesn't now where it's going, etc. The next pitch is a strike (making the count 1-1), yet everyone cheers and Crash throws down to 3rd base like it was a strikeout and the batter walks away.

Other mistake: In the beginning of the movie, the catcher is in the dugout eating a hotdog in front of his manager. Pretty gutsy (or stupid) thing to do, since no manager would ever allow his players to eat something like that right before or during a game.

Suggested correction: Defying a custom isn't a movie error. Also, considering that dietary restrictions for a Single-A ballclub in 1987 were likely far looser than today, it's possible the manager doesn't actually care.

Continuity mistake: In a bus scene Crash is shown holding a guitar talking about being in the majors. In one scene he's just holding the guitar, the next he has a pair of sunglasses in his hand while holding the guitar. The next scene the sunglasses are gone. A couple of shots later the guitar is sitting in the seat next to him. When Laloosh challenges Crash to a fight, he's holding the guitar again.
