Factual error: In the ball park the sign for NBC says channel 4. In Cleveland, NBC was and still is on channel 3.

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.

Visible crew/equipment: During the first game of the season, The camera pans across the press box to reveal Harry Doyle for the first time. During the pan, the reflection of the camera can be seen in the glass. (00:33:25)
