Continuity mistake: At one point Snipes jumps into the ocean to save his son, and when it shows a close-up on his face, you can tell it's not him. It's a pretty weak stunt double.

Continuity mistake: The point is made a couple of times in the movie that Bobby Rayburn is playing centerfield for the Giants and moving Juan Primo to LEFT field. But on Opening Day, when Rayburn and Primo collide in the outfield trying to catch a fly ball, Rayburn's moving to his left while Primo's moving to his right, indicating that Primo was playing RIGHT field.

Factual error: In one scene, the pitcher has an Atlanta Braves uniform on and the catcher has a Colorado Rockies uniform on. Unless this was an all star game, how could this be?

Factual error: When they show an overhead shot of the stadium (Candlestick Park), it is of a football game. Yet the film is about baseball.

Continuity mistake: In the final scenes when Snipes has to hit a home run to save his son, the pitcher is addressed as Martinez, but as he throws the last ball you can just see the back of his jersey where it shows the beginning of his name, but instead of starting with a M it starts with a C.

Factual error: In the scene showing how great the Giants are doing after Primo's death, and Bobby gets his number 33 back, the clips keep showing San Fran in home and away jerseys at the wrong time. Since when does a home team play with their road jerseys on?

Add time

Plot hole: In the scene after Gil saves Bobby's son Shawn, Gil claims he doesn't know who Bobby is. Even guessing that he may be Barry Bonds. Then in the next scene when Gil is pitching to Bobby he knows all about his slump, number, contact, and about Primo's death and this did not strike him as odd?
