* HeyItsThatGuy / RetroactiveRecognition: "Downtown" Anderson is [[TheShield Shane]].
** Pops moved to Philadelphia and became a ColdCase detective.
** Cerrano became [[Series/TwentyFour President of the United States]].
** The director of Vaughn's Right Guard ad in the second film went on to be a [[TheWestWing White House Communications Director]].
* TheCastShowoff: Creator/CharlieSheen was actually a pitcher in high school, which gives Vaughn one of the most accurate deliveries in any baseball movie. It also didn't require much fudging to make his fastballs look convincing; although nowhere near Vaughn's triple-digit heater, Sheen was routinely clocked in the high 80s during filming according to WordOfGod.
* NoStuntDouble: Virtually all the baseball scenes in the first film were done by the cast themselves; for instance, that really is Snipes making the sensational home-run-robbing catch during the finale. Anything they couldn't do well, the crew just filmed around it (with Snipes, he couldn't throw well nor run fast, so Hayes isn't seen throwing a ball and is why his running is usually in slow motion). The baseball sequences were actually shot with the actors playing ball trying to match the outcome needed to depict on film. The actors were enthusiastic about doing it, since they had to train and practice like real players, as well as living out playing major league ball in front of 25,000 people. The notable exception is Tom Berenger; former Dodger Chuck Yeager (who also plays Coach Temple) does most of Jake Taylor's catching action.
** During a montage of taking ground balls off his body, Corbin Bernsen was being hit with rubberized baseballs; however, those painful bruises he sees later are in fact real bruises he suffered.
* TheOtherDarrin: Omar Epps replaced Wesley Snipes as Willie Mays Hayes
** The second movie mocks this by showing how Hayes spent his off-season... starting a movie career as an action hero (which is what Snipes did in RealLife).
