** He should be solid. It's mentioned by Phelps that he'd been coach of the Toledo Mud Hens for ''thirty years''! For comparison, as of this writing, only one MLB coach has been been with the same team for more than ten years (Mike Sciosia of the Los Angeles Angels) and only one has been an MLB coach longer than thirty years (Connie Mack of the Oakland A's).

* {{Foreshadowing}}: Inside the empty stadium, Taylor imagines himself calling his shot a la Babe Ruth and hitting a home run. He tries this ploy in the climactic game.

* {{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.
