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.
Other mistake: Towards the end of the movie when the Dragons are playing the Giants for the pennant, Uchiyama argues with the umpire when he called Jack out for touching home plate. He bumps him not once, but twice. No umpire would stand for this; Uchiyama would've been ejected from the game immediatley.
Jack Eliot: We're not athletes, we're baseball players.
Trivia: Jack's home run streak and the fight with the Hiroshima Carp pitcher who hit him were based on 2 actual events by 2 differnt American ex-Baseball players playing in Japan, Randy Bass and Warren Cromartie respectively.
