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....
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)
