When Babe is in his hotel room his door opens and reveals the room number across the hall to be room #714 - an obvious reference to the total number of home runs the Babe hit during his career.
Every ball park except Fenway Park was portrayed by Wrigley Field (Cubs fans can tell just by looking at how the grass is cut by 1st and 3rd base).
When interviewed during production of the film, John Goodman noted the irony of having to lose weight to play the part of Ruth.
The transportation scenes were filmed at the Illinois Railway Museum in Union, Illionis. The museum's Frisco 1630 steam locomotive and the observation car "Inglehome" were used. The museum's 1859 Chicago horse car was moved to Chicago's Webster Street for a cameo role as a Baltimore horse-drawn tram in the segment about Ruth's childhood days.

When he's in his last days of playing and he hits home runs, he can not touch first and walk back to the dugout , he's required to touch all the bases in order, not just first. Now if Ruth got a single, he could have a pinch runner but he would be out of the game.

Both Beep Iams and Brendan Hutt are misbilled as Boys from St. Mary's. They were in fact, Boys in the Stands at Fenway Park, although their scene was cut in pre-production.
