Factual error: Roger's dad says when the "Angels win the pennant." During the last final scene/regular season game, after the win, Ranch Wilder announces that "the Angels won the pennant." They would have to have won the American League Championship Series in order to win the pennant.
Continuity mistake: In the last game of the movie you can see that Ray Mitchell (Angel Player) hits a home run to tie the game. If you look you can see that the home run ball goes over the fence and out of the stadium but then after they change cameras to Ray and then back to where he hit the home run it shows a man with the ball in his hand as if he caught it.
George Knox: You're Roger's mom?
Maggie Nelson: Nope.
George Knox: Aunt? Grandma?
Maggie Nelson: No, we're not related. This is a short-term foster care facility, I run it. Roger is a ward of the state.
George Knox: I see. So Roger, he's got a wild imagination? Always coming up with stories?
Maggie Nelson: No actually, he's very grounded. Truth is most kids who are taken away from their parents by the court system, have a good handle on reality.
Trivia: At the end of the movie, Carney Lansford spits out chewing tobacco. In reality, they used black liquorice to obtain the same look without having to use the real thing.
Question: What did Al mean when he told Roger to keep his nose clean? I've heard this expression somewhere else but I just don't understand what it means.
