For Love of the Game

Continuity mistake: When the Tigers are coming to bat in the third inning, the announcer says that they have 2 hits so far, but the scoreboard at Yankee stadium just showed them as having 0.

Factual error: Kevin Coster's arrival at spring training is set up by a shot of a beach scene with the caption "Spring Training Lakeland Florida". The shot was not filmed in Lakeland and is not at all representative of this town. Lakeland, Florida is located near the middle of the state, and while it does have many lakes, it is not on the ocean. (I suspect this shot was actually filmed in Ft. Lauderdale or Miami, which is at least 200 miles away.) (00:05:56)

Audio problem: As the play by play announcer calls the final inning of the final game he describes the ground out to third as a ball "hit to the right side". A ground ball to third would have been described as hit to the left side.
