Corrected entry: When Stan and the pitcher trick the runner on 1st to get him out, this would not be allowed. A pitcher can't step on the rubber and make a pitching movement unless he actually has the ball.
Corrected entry: At the end of the movie, they state that Stan was elected to the Hall of Fame on the "next ballot". This could not be true since Major League Baseball players only become eligible to be voted into the HOF after waiting 5 years from the last game as a player. (The only exception ever granted to this was Roberto Clemente, whose time requirement was waived after he was killed in a plane crash).stevesox

Corrected entry: In order to show Mr. 3000 how fast a baseball pitch goes, Mr. 3000's teammate drops a bottle and says that the bottle took "four-tenths of a second" to fall. In 0.4 seconds, a bottle will fall only 0.76 meters, or about 2 feet 7 inches. He definitely dropped the bottle from much higher than 2 feet 7 inches.
