Michael Hoffman said, in his commentary, that the character of Steven Schwimmer is given a birthmark, because the original character, as written by Don DeLillo, was not meant to be as attractive as Robert Downey, Jr. was when he was cast in the part.

I was moved and compelled to watch Combining real and fictional events, Game 6 centers around the historic 1986 World Series and a day in the life of a playwright who skips opening night to watch the momentous game.
