Mr. Baseball

Continuity mistake: Toward the end of the movie when the Dragons are facing the Giants for the Pennant, Hammer is up to bat and get a hit. When you see him round first base, they show a picture of the dugout, where you will find him holding a large hammer. It's tough to be at bat and on the bench.

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.

Other mistake: At the end of the film, Hammer agrees to join the Los Angeles Dodgers just in time for a weekend series against the Atlanta Braves. The problem here is that the Dragons won the Central League Pennant and thus, qualify for the Japan Series. The Dragons wouldn't allow him to leave until the postseason has been completed.

Jack Eliot: We're not athletes, we're baseball players.

Jack Elliot: Japanese way, 'Shut up and Take it'.
Hiroko Uchiyama: Jack's way, 'ME, ME, ME'! Sometimes acceptance and cooperation are strengths also.

Jack Elliot: Just let them have a little fun.
Uchiyama: Baseball is work. Not fun.
Jack Elliot: Baseball is grown men getting paid to play a game. When you were a kid, I bet you didn't pick up a bat and ball because you were dying to work. A player's career is short enough. Let them enjoy it.
