* PoorCommunicationKills: After Kit's rant at Dottie about how difficult it is for the two of them to be on the same team, the latter goes to the head of the league and comments that she (Dottie) is struggling to stay with the Peaches because of her relationship with her sister. Dottie thinks that this will result in them trading her to another team. But she doesn't state that desire clearly enough, because the league ends up trading ''Kit'' instead, who is understandably furious at this development.

* UnderageCasting: The adult Stillwell was played by Mark Holton, who was 33 years old at the time of filming. Young Stillwell is introduced shortly after the first season of the AAGPBL begins in 1943. The scene in which Holton appears takes place 45 years later, in 1988, meaning Stillwell would've been in his late 40s by then.

** Also, the game the girls are playing. She hits the winning runs to cheers of "Dottie! Dottie!" from the crowd. At the end it's KIT who scores the winning run and is escorted off the field to the sound of her name.

Shirley. After the TrainingMontage for the tryouts, the Racine manager took for granted that the ladies knew how to read, and thought she was having a HeroicBSOD over not being picked. Helen came up and helped her, locating her name on the Rockford roster.
** During a bus trip scene, we see Mae teaching Shirley how to read...with an erotic novel.

& ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: When the Western Union man comes to the Rockford locker room with the telegram that one of their husbands died in the war, he forgot the placard for who it was for, and said he couldn't open the telegram to see who it was for. Jimmy relieves him of the telegram, knowing the team would not be able to function not knowing who had lost their husband.
