* BaseBreaker: Kit. Some people see her as a PassionateSportsGirl and sympathethic [[TheUnfavorite unfavorite]] who overcame being OvershadowedByAwesome, others see her as a [[{{Wangst}} whiny]], bratty, hostile UngratefulBastard who didn't earn her place on the league and treated her sister with contempt even when Dottie did everything she could to make her happy.

** WordOfGod: No, she didn't. (If she did, she wouldn't have been giving tips on her sister's weaknesses.)

* FridgeBrilliance: It may seem like Jimmy was just being nice to Evelyn by not venting at her ''again'' for missing the cut-off man, but in actuality, he was just being a manager. One of the jobs of a manager is to adjust his coaching to players on an individual basis, and venting at Evelyn wouldn't help her. You'll notice she gets the message, and at the climax, she hits the cutoff man ''perfectly''.

-->'''Jimmy:''' This is chickenshit, Dottie, if you want to go back to Oregon and make a hundred babies, great, I'm in no position to tell anyone how to live. But sneaking out like this, quitting, you'll regret it for the rest of your life. Baseball is what gets inside you. It's what lights you up, you can't deny that.\\
'''Dottie:''' It just got too hard.\\
'''Jimmy:''' It's ''supposed'' to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it '''great'''.

** Jimmy's "The 'hard' is what makes it great" speech has since become a popular motivational slogan for sports teams as well as a motto for anyone following their dreams.

** Kit scores the winning run in the championship by knocking over Dottie who was blocking home plate. Twelve years after this movie, MLB instituted the controversial Posey Rule which prevents catchers from blocking the plate unless they possess the ball.

However, Dottie had the ball long before Kit was even near the plate (heck, the relay was caught by the cutoff as Kit was rounding third, ignoring the coach's pleas to stop at third).

** Dottie [[spoiler:possibly throwing the final game, given that while it gives Kit a win, it also screws over the rest of the Peaches.]]
