The Bad News Bears

Continuity mistake: In the last inning of the championship game, Buttermaker opens a beer in a short brown bottle (perhaps a Pabst Blue Ribbon, Red White and Blue, or Red Stripe) right before Amanda grounds out. When he exits the dugout following the at-bat, he's holding a Coors.

Continuity mistake: In Kelly Leak's first shown at-bat, he hit a home run to win the game, and the team the Bears defeated was sponsored by Denny's, as you can see from their catcher's logo when Kelly crosses the plate. Problem is, Denny's sponsors the Yankees, who went the entire season undefeated. We know this because in several scenes, including the one after the home-run where the head lady mocked the Bears' victory, you saw the standings where the Yankees had no losses.

Other mistake: After the 2 Yankees put ketchup on Lupus' head, Tanner sticks up for him. After the Yankees put Tanner in the garbage can, there's obviously more ketchup on his head from before, along with ketchup on his shirt that wasn't there before either.

Question: There is a red headed kid that has several small lines in the movie, primarily in the beginning. He plays 1st base once or twice. Who is he, and why wasn't/isn't his role in the movie as big as all the other kids?

Ken Hogan

Chosen answer: That red headed kid is Regi Tower, played by now-screenwriter and director Scott Firestone. Several of the boys had very minor roles, so Regi wasn't really an exception. His character did not appear in either of the sequels to The Bad News Bears.
