* 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.

* StatusQuoIsGod: With regards to the players in the sequel. Any player who tries to add a new dynamic to his game or life is punished for it, and the message is that these guys need to play to their strengths and leave their other ambitions in mind. Hayes needs to ditch the film career and the attempt to add power to his game, while Vaughn needs to ditch his off-speed stuff and stop trying to flee his Wild Thing persona.

** Speaking of Hayes, his way of making the team in the first place is all this. He simply reports to the Indian's training camp ''uninvited'' and manages to impress Brown enough to get a roster shot, even though security had just ''tossed him off the property''.

** Correctly averted with Cerrano's game-tying home run in the playoff game. A player is ''not'' automatically out for carrying his bat around the bases; only if he uses the bat to hinder the fielders or gain an advantage is he out. Since a home run is a dead ball, Cerrano is declared out.

* HollywoodHeartAttack: Averted with Lou's. One, he doesn't actually die from it; two, no one actually knows he's having one because he's in the middle of chewing out his players at the time.

A 1989 movie about a RagtagBunchOfMisfits. In this case, they're the Cleveland Indians, a baseball team that 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 team owner. It's all part of her ploy to get the franchise to fail so badly 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.
