* HollywoodHomely: Marla, who looks quite cute once she gets a makeover. Kit also, though she's the only person who seems to think this--the general opinion is that while not as beautiful as Dottie, she's still quite pretty. Even the newsreel makes a point of this.

* RewatchBonus: Once you've seen the film and you know that Dottie tells her old teammate that [[spoiler:Bob has died]], her behavior in the beginning makes a lot more sense. It's clear that she's reluctant to attend the reunion, and her daughter is quite adamant that she go, because [[spoiler:she's been depressed over the loss of her husband, which is fairly recent]].

* OneSceneWonder: When a foul ball goes into the segregated black section of a stadium, the woman who tosses it back hurls a mean pitch that impresses Dottie, but alas, the movie takes place four years before Jackie Robinson broke major league baseball's color barrier.

* ComedyGhetto: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WcN392H2jx0 The trailer]] makes it out to be more of a comedic film when it really isn't.

* 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'''.
