William J. Donovan:
You're an unusual man Mr. Berg, you speak 7 languages, you're an athlete, you're more than up to the physical requirements of the job...
Moe Berg: What job?
The movie starts in 1944 and then switches to Fenway Park with the title card "Eight years earlier", placing it in 1936. The Red Sox are playing the Washington Senators. Buddy Myer (#1) is on first threatening to steal and pitcher Syd Cohen (#14) is at bat. The box scores of Senators/Red Sox games showed that Berg, Myer, and Cohen never appeared in the same game during the 1936 season. Furthermore, Buddy Myer usually batted 3rd and it is highly unlikely he would be in the batting order in front of a pitcher.
