The "big club" is referenced several times during the movie, though it is never made completely clear what major league team the Bulls are affiliated with. At the time of the filming, the Durham Bulls were a Carolina League Single A affiliate of the Atlanta Braves. As of 2013, the Durham Bulls are the Triple A affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays. See more »
In her opening monologue, Annie says, "There are 108 beads in a Catholic rosary and there are 108 stitches in a baseball." While a set of Hindu or Buddhist prayer beads has 108 beads (and, indeed, the number 108 figures prominently in Eastern religions), the most commonly used Catholic rosary has only 59 beads.

A comical story about baseball and sex. How can it miss? The minor league Durham Bull's have had their share of loses and looney characters. Raw talent sometimes is more plentiful than brains. Tim Robbins is a young pitcher, "Nuke" LaLoosh, needing a lot of instruction if he is to make it to the "bigs". Aging catcher, Crash Davis, played by Kevin Costner, is assigned to the team to whip the youngster into shape. The team's number one groupie, played by Susan Sarandon, wraps both players around her little finger.
Hilarious situations and the lighter side of baseball. This movie made me a Sarandon fan. Robert Wuhl and Trey Wilson provide backup.
