Corrected entry: All ownership changes in Major League Baseball would have to be approved by the other owners in the league. To gain the approval of the other owners, Dorn would have to show a financial ability to keep the team solvent, which he cannot do. Even if he gets past this hurdle and gets the other owners to approve him, there is almost no chance the owners would approve Rachel Phelps' move to buy back the team, especially after her attempts to lose in the first film.Vader47000
Corrected entry: Near the beginning of the film, Rube cries that he might get sent to Omaha. Omaha is the AAA affiliate of the Royals, not the Indians.
Corrected entry: In the second game of the doubleheader versus the Red Sox, when Willy comes in to pinch run, another unknown player comes up to bat. While Willy steals 2nd, 3rd, and home two pitches are thrown to the batter. Then Cerrano goes in to pinch hit but a pinch hitter cannot go in in the middle of an at bat unless the player is injured.
Corrected entry: When Vaughn was in the bullpen, the girl he was dating and one of the students got his autograph. But according to MLB rules, players are not allowed to give out autographs during the game. They are not even supposed to be involved in conversations with fans while a game is in process.
Corrected entry: During the scene where Dorn is in the dugout and yells at Jake Taylor that "as General Manager of this team I demand to know when I will get a start?", Taylor answers him that there will be an old timer's game coming up. Fact is, if Dorn is the General Manager of the organization, he would have MUCH more power over Jake Taylor. If he really wanted to play, he wouldn't need Taylor's permission.
Corrected entry: Throughout the entire movie, Parkmans' helmets never have a protective piece covering the ear. Any baseball games at any level the helmets have that protective piece over the ear.
Corrected entry: In this movie, Roger Dorn buys the team from Rachel Phelps. But, if you remember the first movie, there was a scene where Jack Taylor goes over to Dorn's house to confront him about "why Dorn didn't come up with that grounder that Rucker hit in the 9th?" Dorn replies that he'll become a free agent the year after next. Hence, that means he has a full season under contract after their one-game-playoff win against the Yankees. The problem is then that in this movie, it's the season that immediately followed their one-game-playoff win against the Yankees. So, how can Dorn become an owner when he still should be under contract?
Corrected entry: In the last inning of the ALCS game, when Vaughn comes in, he intentionally walks the batter to get to Parkman. In Major League Baseball, you can only intentionally walk a batter if first base is unoccupied. There were runners on first and second, thus making it impossible to intentionally walk the batter.ManOnStilts
Corrected entry: In the movie we are introduced to Rube Baker, the catcher who at times has trouble throwing the ball back to the pitcher. Somebody with this problem wouldn't make the little league baseball level, let alone the major leagues.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Cerrano goes into the outfield to assist the bird he hit, he's tagged out by an infielder. The reality is that he was out the second he ran out of the baselines. Rule 7.08 of Major League Baseball: Any runner is out when: (a) (1) He runs more than three feet away from a direct line between bases to avoid being tagged unless his action is to avoid interference with a fielder fielding a batted ball; or (2) after touching first base, he leaves the baseline, obviously abandoning his effort to touch the next base.
Corrected entry: Although the team is still the Indians, this was filmed at Oriole Park at Camden Yards in Baltimore.
