The Babe

Other mistake: Early on, the Babe is seen showing up late at a game in Boston, staggering hung-over to the plate, and hitting a home run. But this was a home game; it would have been the bottom of the first, and if Ruth hadn't been there by game time, some other player would already be playing in his place.

Suggested correction: By the time Babe Ruth played, substitutions were allowed at anytime. Thus, when Ruth showed up late and batted in the bottom of the 1st, he became a substitution for whomever was playing his position during the top of the 1st.
