Major League

Factual error: In the ball park the sign for NBC says channel 4. In Cleveland, NBC was and still is on channel 3. (Filming took place at the old Milwaukee County Stadium, former home of the Braves and Brewers, hence the NBC, WTMJ channel 4 sign. Still a mistake, but there's the explanation.) (01:33:40)

Factual error: Shots of the first game or two have angles of the batters' shadows facing behind home plate (or in other words the sun is around left to center field in some shots). In major league games, that would not be a possibility due to baseball rules that the sun can not be in the batter's eyes.

Continuity mistake: The batting order in the one-game playoff is Taylor-Dorn-Cerrano (as seen in the 7th), with Hayes batting before Taylor (as seen in the 9th). Cerrano hits the homer with two outs in the 7th, and Hayes is shown batting with nobody on, and two outs in the 9th. If they faced the minimum, Hayes would've been up with only one out (#5 batter gets the third out in the 7th, 6-7-8 batters get out in the 8th, and the #9 batter gets one out before Hayes). There's no way they could've gone through the line-up again without scoring a run. The furthest they could've gotten was the #8 batter (two spots before the leadoff Hayes) coming to bat in the 9th with two outs and nobody on. (01:23:30)
