The stadium used for filming was the old Wrigley Field minor-league park in South Los Angeles. It hosted Major League games for only one season, in 1961, when the new expansion Los Angeles Angels played there. The park was torn down in 1966. See more
In the time depicted, major-league baseball players almost never had jersey numbers higher than the 50s... yet several players have numbers in the 60s and 70s, a practice rare until the 1980s.
