Good morning, gentlemen, and welcome to another season of Indians baseball.
In the final scene of the film, at the point where Jake is holding Lynn up and Vaughn and Willie exchange their special handshake, you can see that Willie's jersey is much cleaner than it was while running the bases in the process of scoring the winning run.
An edited-for-television version of the film featured a revised scene depicting the removal of the final piece of the YOU GUYS STINK / Rachel Phelps Cut-out. Lou Brown can be seen (and heard) asking, "Should I take it off ?" After he does, the rest of the players cheer loudly, though the fully unclothed cutout is never shown.
