Corrected entry: When the team is playing day games, the sun is in right field. This is against MLB rules as the sun must not be in the batter's eyes. Other baseball movies have shown this same mistake as well.

Correction: First: They aren't playing in Major League Baseball. They are playing in Nippon Professional Baseball. Different league, different rules. Second: it's not a rule. The MLB rulebook only states that it is "desirable" for an orientation of that type. It's not required. Https://medium.com/@kevin_bullock/losing-baseballs-in-the-sun-860e81601b25.

Continuity mistake: Toward the end of the movie when the Dragons are facing the Giants for the Pennant, Hammer is up to bat and get a hit. When you see him round first base, they show a picture of the dugout, where you will find him holding a large hammer. It's tough to be at bat and on the bench.

Jack Elliot: Just let them have a little fun.
Uchiyama: Baseball is work. Not fun.
Jack Elliot: Baseball is grown men getting paid to play a game. When you were a kid, I bet you didn't pick up a bat and ball because you were dying to work. A player's career is short enough. Let them enjoy it.
