* {{Zeerust}}: An unexpected source at times. Vaughn's velocity is clocked at 96 at the start and Lou was impressed. Today, that's just expected for a late innings reliever or a #1 or 2 starter.

(Although the 101 and 102 he clocks as the last pitch he throws of each movie are still truly impressive; only one current pitcher (Aroldis Chapman) can hit triple digits consistently.)

In this case, they're the Cleveland Indians, a baseball team that at the time of the film's release hadn't made a playoff appearance in over 30 years. No one in Cleveland knew who was on the team, which was a calculated move by Rachel Phelps (Margaret Whitton), the [[RichBitch new team owner]]. It's all part of her ploy to get the franchise to fail so badly (and draw so little attendance) that she can void her contracts and move the team to Florida. To this end, she assembles the sorriest bunch of ballplayers she can find. (If that sounds unrealistic, keep in mind, this was before either the Miami Marlins or Tampa Bay Rays existed, and seven years before the Cleveland ''Browns'' moved to Baltimore.)

* IronicEcho: In the first film, Vaughn's first major-league inning, he throws 12 straight balls. In the second film, his first inning Vaughn strikes out the side on nine straight strikes. Of course, things quickly go downhill from there.
