Factual errors 

Several times during the course of the movie, the league standings are displayed, but the numbers shown are mathematically impossible. The total number of wins and losses for all teams in a baseball league must be even (since there is a winner and loser of each game). But every time the standings are shown in this film, those numbers don't match. In one scene, the standings show every team with a .500 record or better, which cannot happen mathematically.

In the championship game the Yankees' pitcher was allowed to remain in the game despite the manager making his second trip to the mound in an inning. The first trip was to discuss strategy and the second trip was to strike the pitcher after he threw at a Bears' batter.
