PG-13 | | Drama, Romance, Sport
After 19 years of playing the game he's loved his whole life, Billy Chapel has to decide if he's going to risk everything and put everything out there.
The scene in which the ball bounces off of Mickey Hart's head is based on the famous incident in which the same thing happened to Texas Rangers outfielder Jose Canseco. Afterward, when Billy and Mickey are talking in the clubhouse, Mickey jokes "It'll probably end up on ESPN." In fact, Canseco's incident became blooper reel fodder for ESPN for the remainder of that year.

Billy Chapel: It was Right Guard.
Jane Aubrey: What?
Billy Chapel: It was Right Guard, not Old Spice.
Jane Aubrey: I was being metaphorical.
When Gus Sinsky is at bat and gets his double, one shot shows the sun in front of him. With the orientation of Yankee Stadium, the only time the sun could be in that position is in the morning, but the game time is late afternoon/evening.
A full frontal nude shot of Kevin Costner had to be cut at Universal's request to secure a PG-13 rating.
