Major League II (1994) Poster

Goofs

Revealing mistakes 

When Jack Parkman hits a home run off of Rick Vaughn, the ball flight is clearly New Comiskey Park, even though none of the movie was filmed there. Also, the scoreboard with the batter's name on it is visible. It clearly says DEAN P is the first name and the first initial of the last name. The team on the opponent line says RANGERS, so that video was taken from a real game where 3B Dean Palmer of the Rangers hit a home run.

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

When Vaughn is talking to Nikki in the pizza shop, we hear the sound of Vaughn putting his glass down before it hits the table.

During the last game, announcer Harry Doyle says that the runners will be moving with two outs. However, when Shoop pitches the ball, the runner on second base never moves.

Character error 

Parkman uses his catcher's helmet for batting, which is not permitted in baseball. Catcher's helmets are thinner than batting helmets and do not have ear protectors, which are required on batting helmets.

Dorn's accountant uses incorrect financial vocabulary when advising Dorn he is going broke. Dorn needs to increase his revenue to keep the team afloat, not his profits.

Continuity 

In the last game against Chicago, Willie is batting and we hear Harry Doyle say over the radio, "Willie Mays Hayes is trying to pick up Miller from third." But if you look at third base, there is no player there.

In the top of the 9th of game 7 of the ALCS, it is mentioned that Chicago's Beck already had a 2 run double in the game, presumably the hit that drove in Parkman when he ran over Baker at the plate (which is the only run scoring play the Sox had other than the 3 run HR Parkman hit later). This should not have been possible, since Parkman hit behind Beck in the 9th, so Parkman could not have been on base when Beck doubled.

During the last game against the White Sox, in many of the scenes you see numerous seating sections through out the stadium that are completely empty, yet in other scenes you see people standing in the outfield seating area indicating that it is a sold out game and that it is a standing room only game.

When Willy Mays-Hayes yells to distract a player and cause him to drop a fly ball, the freeze-frame newspaper shot of that moment appears with the headline "Tribe gives Jays the Willys." However, the player who dropped the ball is clearly wearing a Baltimore Orioles uniform, not a Toronto Blue Jays one.

In the last game with the White Sox the pitcher makes the pitch and Baker throws it back to him. When they meet at the mound, Baker hands the ball to the pitcher as if he had never thrown it to him.

In the last game when Willie says he will not attempt to slide, Parkman expects him to try and run him over, evidently Willie jumps over Parkman, and gets dirt all over his back and body. In the next shot of him however Willie is clearly wearing a clean uniform, not even a mark of dirt on him.

Errors in geography 

Set in Cleveland, yet obviously filmed in Baltimore. Oriole Park at Camden Yards, home of the Baltimore Orioles, is used as the Indians' home park, even though it looks nothing like Cleveland Municipal Stadium. Advertisements for Baltimore businesses like "Sheraton Inner Harbor" and the Baltimore Sun are seen as well as a few Baltimore landmarks.

Factual errors 

In game 7 of the ALCS, there are runners on first and second. The runner on first is held on, but in an actual game, the first baseman would never hold on a runner with a guy on second.

As Lou was returning to the Hospital to get a triple bypass done. He was seen smoking as he was getting out of the car. In reality, people who are about to get a triple bypass would be advised to refrain from smoking to prevent any future heart attacks and not to complicate the said surgery.

In the second game of the doubleheader versus the Red Sox, when Willy comes in to pinch run, another unknown player comes up to bat. While Willy steals 2nd, 3rd, and home two pitches are thrown to the batter. Then Cerrano goes in to pinch hit but a pinch hitter cannot go in in the middle of an at bat unless the player is injured.

When Tanaka climbs the left field fence and makes the division-winning catch, the catch should not have counted. As per MLB rules, when Tanaka establishes a stationery position out of the playing field (as compared to falling or jumping), the play should have been ruled a home run.

Parkman talks to several Indians batters, even though catchers are not allowed to talk to batters during the course of an at-bat. In a real game, the offending catcher would likely be ejected from the game by the home plate umpire.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

At the time of the movie, The Indians held spring training in Winter Haven, Fl enabling them to play the Red Sox (as well as Mets, Twins and Blue Jays) in exhibition games.

On opening day, the White Sox score their first run with three consecutive singles starting with the top of the order in the third inning. Given that Vaughn had a 1-2-3 inning to start the game, how did the White Sox start the third inning with the top of their order, without scoring a run in the second inning? The White Sox first three hitters made outs in the first inning. It is possible to send six hitters to the plate in the second inning in order to start the third inning with the number one hitter without scoring a run. For example, three walks and three strikeouts.

During a game with the Orioles, Hayes hits a pop fly to the second baseman and yells, "I got it!" to distract the fielder so that the ball will drop and he can be safe at second. However, his call is a form of interference and Hayes should be out according to MLB rules. However, Alex Rodriguez of the New York Yankees did the similar thing in 2007 against the Toronto Blue Jays and was not called out.

When the Indians are playing a spring training game against the Red Sox, they are playing in Arizona. This couldn't happen. The Cleveland Indians play all their spring training games in the Cactus League in Arizona, while the Boston Red Sox play all their games in the Grapefruit League in Florida. From 1993 to 2008, the Indians did Spring Training in Winter Haven, Florida. That means they would be in the Grapefruit League during the time of the movie, so them playing ST games with the Red Sox as well as the Blue Jays and the Mets (as depicted in the movie) would be correct.

Plot holes 

Jake Taylor becomes a coach when Cleveland keeps Parkman and Baker as the two catchers. However when Parkman's rights are sold to Chicago, a second catcher is never added to the roster, and Baker seems to be the only one on the roster. It would have been sensible to have Taylor become Baker's back-up.

Phelps buys enough of the team from Roger to keep them financially stable. However, since her plot to move the team to Miami was discovered by the team (and apparently the press), she would have been guilty of collusion and forbidden by other MLB owners from having even partial ownership of any team.
