In a film that contains many references to baseball history, the most subtle is that of the Twins pitcher named Mike McGrevey (Scott Patterson). In the early 1900's in Boston, there was a saloon keeper with that name who led a group of Boston Red Sox fans called the "Royal Rooters". (Today, they would considered a "fan club")They would enter in a large procession and sit in the lower left field stands of the old Huntington Ave Grounds (and later, Fenway Park). The Rooters, who were often drunk, were known for viciously taunting opposing players and playing music throughout a game with a marching band that accompanied the Rooters. Their biggest claim to fame in baseball history came in the 1912 World Series when they became so disruptive that they delayed game seven of the Series. The Red Sox eventually won that World Series in eight games (Game 2 ended in a tie and was called for darkness, forcing the Series to go beyond 7 games)
