Corrected entry: When Redford is hitting in the scene where he hits the lights for a home run, he actually got four strikes.
Corrected entry: In Roy Hobbs' last at bat of the movie he takes the 1st pitch for a called strike. The 2nd pitch is called a ball. The Pittsburgh manager then decides to change pitchers with the count at 1-1. The relief pitcher's 1st pitch is fouled into the press box making the count 1 ball and 2 strikes. The 2nd pitch from the relief pitcher is swung on and missed, and should be strike 3. Hobbs stays in the box and hits a long fly ball foul and hits a HR on the next pitch. Roy Hobbs should have struck out.
Corrected entry: Same game....they show John Olson, the catcher, batting left-handed when he bats right-handed the rest of the movie - and he isn't a switch-hitter.
Corrected entry: During Roy Hobb's final at-bat in the pennant game, the blood spots on his uniform change with each shot. In some shots there are 3 distinct blood stains, in others there are 2.
Corrected entry: In Roy's last at bat, the starting pitcher throws two pitches from the wind-up before being replaced by his manager. But with runners on first and third, and his team leading by two runs, he should have been pitching from the stretch position to check on the runners.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Roy Hobbs breaks his bat ("Wonder Boy") upon hitting a foul ball, the bat is obviously intact as he completes his swing. Only when they cut back after the ball has gone foul is the bat splintered in two.
Corrected entry: In the scene in the Judge's office before the final game, Hobbes says he'll hit away, i.e. to left field, to compensate for his injury. However, he subsequently wins the game by homering into the lights overlooking right field.
