Suggested correction: This has already been addressed earlier. There is nothing to suggest the 2 jets are related in any way. They just show a jet landing and a jet taxiing.

Factual error: The first batter of the baseball game, Jay Johnstone, bats from the right-handed batter's box. Johnstone, a real player who is playing himself in the scene, was a lifetime left-handed batter.

Suggested correction: Johnstone also played his last game in 1985, he never played for Seattle, and never wore "29." So, other than the name, there's nothing to indicate he's playing himself. He's not even credited as "himself."

Trivia: The baseball blooper reel shows a ballplayer's head coming off when he crashes into a fence. This scene is a tribute to a quote from San Diego Padres announcer Jerry Coleman: "Winfield goes back to the wall. He hits his head on the wall - and it rolls off! It's rolling all the way back to second base! This is a terrible thing for the Padres."

More trivia for The Naked Gun

Question: I am watching "The Naked Gun" on the IFC Network, and during one of the commercials they asked a trivia question about the movie that I never saw answered. The question was, "Which famous comedian contributed a scene or gag for the movie", and the choices were Mel Brooks, Steve Martin, and one other name that I do not remember. Does anyone know the answer to this question? I can not find any information about it anywhere. Thank you.

Chosen answer: Mel Brooks. When Frank is undercover as the ump, one of the batters hits Frank in the face with the bat. This was a suggestion Brooks had made.
