Suggested correction: Actually no, in that angle and the way Jody kicked him away hard from the truck it's possible he landed a lot further away than you might think.

Underground picture

Show generally

Factual error: "Underground" is set in 1857 Georgia, yet the padded baseball glove August Pullman gives to his son is of a type used during the early 20th century. Before 1883 when padded gloves were first manufactured, gloves were either not used by baseball players or railroad brakeman's gloves were used.
