    The only thing that ever bothered me about this film was the lineup error in the final game. We know from that game that the top of the order was:

    1. Hayes

    2. Taylor

    3. Dorn.

    4. Cerano

    Cerano hits a homer with 2 outs in the 7th. If the next guy got out, the next inning would be 6,7, and 8. If they went 3 up and 3 down, the ninth would start with the #9 hitter with Hayes batting second. However, when Hayes comes to bat, there are already 2 outs. It would have been impossible for the Indians to go all the way through the order and get Hayes up with 2 outs without having scored in that time.

    It’s small and petty, but sports movies always seem to have at least one glaring error in math, time, scheduling, scoring, or whatever.

    someone told me a while back that the major league movies were supposed to be about the phillies instead of the indians as the team portrayed in the movie. due to the many seasons of futility by the phillies is there any truth to this at all? or has anyone ever heard of anything like this

    Don’t get me wrong, I think Major League is one of my 50 favorite films of all-time, but there’s this one scene that don’t quite get.

    I’m talking about the magazines with People and Sports Illstrated. I can see the Cleveland Indians being in the latter magazine considering their REAL hot streak late in the season, but People magazine? C’mon, LET’S GET REAL! The only times you see an athelete on People magazine is when the sports figure gets his/herself in trouble, saved someone’s life outside of their sports world, or dates a huge film/TV/music star.

    I don’t think they would be on the American Express card commerical (or at least Nation wide) until they make the playoffs and World Series, but for movie purposes, it is an ammusing scene espeically with Willie Mayes Hayes sliding at the end :-)

    Just one little nitpick, other than that, one of the best baseball movies of all-time!

    I realize free agency didn’t become the circus show it is today, but did teams really have that few of players under multi-year contracts so that they could just change 90% of the roster every spring?

    Thought he looked familiar . . . now he pitches for Allstate insurance (pun intended, although I think Pedro was an outfielder).

    I am I lived around Cleveland all my life, and I love this movie. Every Indians game I go to there is at least three or four Vaughn jersey’s. Are there fans of this movie that aren’t Tribe fans.

    I was wondering if anyone could let me know who the statue is in the movie Major League. It has an Indians cap on its head.

    Bob Uecker sang the 7th inning stretch at Wrigley today, and during his interview in the box he announced that they were making a Major League 4 movie. He didn’t say anything about who else would be in it except for him and Monty, his long-time colorman.

    It’s completely predictable, but when the music comes in after everyone starts cheering, I tear up a little bit every time.

    I’m not familiar with the strategies in baseball, so why shouldn’t Hayes have caught it?
