The 3,000 hit baseball is an Official Major League ball. They were introduced in 2000, so it should be an Official American League ball.

In the 1995 scene, the Brewers are wearing the correct uniform, but behind them in the dugout is the logo that didn't exist until 2000.

In the film, Ross is mentioned as having played a game against the Houston Astros during his first stint with the Brewers. But at the time the fictional game was played, the Brewers were in the American League and there was no regular season interleague play, so the Brewers and Astros would not have played each other.

Boom mic visible 

When Stan and Boca are sitting in the upper deck looking out at the field, before Stan's first game back, the mike can be seen at the top of the frame when the scene shifts to the front view.

Character error 

Tom Arnold mentions a midget who "played for the White Sox." Eddie Gaedel was a 3'7" man who played in one game for the St. Louis Browns in 1951. At the time, the Browns were owned by Bill Veeck, who later owned the White Sox.

During the ESPN flyover, the announcer says the crowd is over 35,000, but many seats in the upper deck are empty. Miller Park holds just over 42,000 fans, so more seats should be full.

T-Rex says he played ball at Fairmount Park in Philadelphia as a kid. Fairmount Park is the city's municipal park system, named after the original Fairmount Park, which is now East Fairmount Park and West Fairmount Park. T-Rex should have said he played at East Fairmount Park or West Fairmount Park.

Continuity 

In 1995, Stan takes his 3,000th hit ball from a boy in the stands. The same boy is in the stands 9 years later, after Stan rejoins the Brewers.

In Stan's first game back, the announcer says "lets go to the top of the 3rd." The Brewers are batting, and they're the home team, so it should be the bottom of the 3rd inning.

When Stan talks to T-Rex during batting practice, T-Rex's necklace is outside of his jersey, then inside of it, then outside again for the rest of the scene.

When the Brewers are playing Astros as they say Gervis is coming to bat it shows a shot of the scoreboard and it says the Astros are leading 5-1 but if you look they scored 3 in the first and 1 in the second and none in the third. Clearly it is the top of the 4th because the Astros are up to bat.

Factual errors 

Right after the Ice Cream song scene, a montage of baseball clips is set to Rob Base's song 'It Takes Two'. During the montage, the Brewers are shown playing the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field. The Brewers are in the 3rd base dugout, while the Cubs are in the 1st base dugout. The Cubs dugout is actually the 3rd base dugout; any visiting team is in the 1st base dugout.

Waukesha should be pronounced WAW-keh-sha, not waw-KEE-sha. If Mr. 3000 lives in the Milwaukee area, he should know that.

Miscellaneous 

The Brewers retired Stan's #21, yet 21 is not on the rafters next to the other retired numbers.

Plot holes 

Baseball players have to be retired for five years to qualify for the Hall of Fame. Since Stan came out of retirement, he wouldn't have been eligible for the Hall of Fame the year after he came back.

Revealing mistakes 

Several of the reporters interviewing Ross have Apple laptops. The Apple icon is not lit up, meaning the computers are not turned on.
