Bull Durham (1988)

Factual error: When Kevin Costner says that if the pitcher starts him out with a curve-ball he is taking him downtown, he strides to the plate and pounds a homer over the left field wall. However, the shot that shows the ball actually flying over the wall shows the distance at 410 feet. No minor league or even major league ball park is 410 to left field, indicating that the shot was actually taken in right center, no where near where Costner's ball actually went out.

Suggested correction: I have played at old minor league stadiums with much larger dimensions. One must check the schedule of the Durham Bulls and find dimensions prior to making this claim.

Continuity mistake: When Crash is arguing with the umpire about the missed call at the plate, he turns to grab his face-mask and says it's a "C--sucking call". He then turns his back to the camera and puts on the catcher's hard hat backwards. In the next shot, as the umpire is charging him and Crash turns to respond, the hard hat is under his arm.
