Revealing mistake: Signs for Baltimore based businesses are clearly visible in the stands, such as "Sheraton Inner Harbour" and various Baltimore banks.
Continuity mistake: Near the end after winning the AL championship, Vaughn vaults the wall to chase down the teacher. As he climbs the wall, you can see a fan reach out and grab his elbow to help him up. The shot changes to a front view of Vaughn coming over the wall and the fan is now too far away to reach him with no time in between shots.
Continuity mistake: The umpire during the final scene was played by a real umpire, except on occasion when an actor had lines to say. You can tell when they switch because you see his white undershirt at the collar - not the black turtleneck that the real umpire wears.
Trivia: The line the biker chick says in the beginning, "Say it ain't so, Rick" (after being disappointed in Wild Thing's clean cut look and using the word, cute), is from the legend of a kid saying "Say it ain't so, Joe" to Shoeless Joe Jackson when the White Sox were accused of throwing the World Series. Joe Jackson also played for the Indians before the White Sox.
Rube Baker: Hey, Cerrano. I'm on the rooster.
Jake Taylor: Rube, you look at Playboy all the time, don't you?
Rube Baker: I don't just look at it. I read the articles.
Jake Taylor: Sure you do.
Rube Baker: I do. I especially like it when they mention the girls' interests, like Betsy loves surfing.
Jake Taylor: You even memorize them?
Rube Baker: Yep. I guess I do.
Jake Taylor: Bingo.
Rube Baker: They're going to send me back to Omaha and I don't even live there.
