Audio problem: After Turner tells his son Joey to throw to Engleberg low and outside, Joey replies "But Dad - I wanted to strike him out", however his mouth doesn't move at all and the volume on this line is much louder, so obviously dubbed in.
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.

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.
Coach Morris Buttermaker: What if he tries something?
Amanda Whurlitzer: I'll handle it.
Coach Morris Buttermaker: Rolling Stones, 11 years old.
Amanda Whurlitzer: I know an 11-year-old girl who is already on the pill.
Coach Morris Buttermaker: Don't ever say that word again.
Amanda Whurlitzer: Jesus! Just who in the heck you think you are?
Coach Morris Buttermaker: The goddamned manager, that's who.
Amanda Whurlitzer: Big wow.
Trivia: After this movie was released, the character Engleberg had to be recast because the actor who played him lost a lot of weight and no longer could play the "fat" catcher so a new heavy actor replaced him in the next two sequels.
