The Cleveland Indians have been slumping for the past 30 years when their owner dies and his wife, an ex-Las Vegas showgirl, takes over. She wants to drop attendance below 800,000 so she can move the team to Miami, so she signs a bunch of misfit players, including Jake Taylor, a past-his-prime catcher; Ricky Vaughn, a convicted felon with a wild fastball; and Pedro Cerrano, a voodoo power-hitting outfielder. However, these players, when they have "something to bring it all together," may not be as bad as the owner hopes....
Other mistake: During the one game playoff against the Yankees, the runner Taylor picks off at first base has the same number as the batter who had just struck out. Also, the number they both wear has been long since retired by the Yankees and therefore no player could ever wear it again. Again, in the first game against the Yankees, the first base coach also has the same number, making it three Yankee players with the number 37.
Question: Rene Russo is listed in the credits as Lynn Wells, but in both the restaurant and when Jake asked for her on the phone with the Cuyahoga sheet metal place, they pronounce her name Westland. I even checked the subtitles. Did I miss something? They don't tell us Tom's last name but a playoff game for a divisional title would be about Oct 3rd when they were supposed to get married? Right?Kim Robb
