Character mistake: After Loopis makes that bumbling bad play in right field that costs the Bears a game, in the dugout Tanner harasses Loopis and says "we would have won if it weren't for you." This statement is incorrect because the score was tied 0-0 in the last inning when Loopis made that bad play to make them lose 1-0... so although the Bears may have had a chance to win if extra innings were played and this play DID make them lose, a "win" wasn't guaranteed the way Tanner came out saying it.
Continuity mistake: In the Bears' second to last game against the Athletics, an announcement is made early in the game that the Bears are winning 1-0. But later in the game when you see the scoreboard, it shows the Athletics scored the first run of the game in the top of the second inning.
Coach Morris Buttermaker: Now, guys, somebody's gonna pay for this windshield. And I think, Engelberg, it's gonna be your father.
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.
