* ActorAllusion: Madonna is essentially playing a 1940s version of herself.
* 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.
** Dottie [[spoiler:possibly throwing the final game, given that while it gives Kit a win, it also screws over the rest of the Peaches.]]
* EndingFatigue: The epilogue is both a [=CMOH=] and a TearJerker, but it does come off as {{Padding}}, especially since it's pretty lengthy.
* 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.
-->'''Newsreel:''' And then there's [Dottie's] kid sister, Kit, who's as single as they come! Enough concentrated oomph for a whole carload of Hollywood starlets.
* InternetBackdraft: Don't ask if [[spoiler: Dottie threw the game or if Kit won legitimately.]] Just don't.
* MemeticMutation: '''"THERE'S NO CRYING IN BASEBALL!"'''
** 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.
* {{Padding}}: A long, maudlin, entirely pointless epilogue with the elderly veterans of the AAGPBL forming for a reunion.
* RetroactiveRecognition: [[{{Monk}} Sharona Fleming]] learns there's no crying in baseball.
** [[Film/TheBourneSeries Noah Vosen]] tries to get Tom Hanks to get his act together.
* TearJerker: [[spoiler: "I'm sorry, Betty."]]
** And Dottie in the scene immediately after. Having not heard from her husband in weeks, and that fresh in her mind, she breaks down fearing the worst. But then...
** The epilogue. [[spoiler:Dottie's husband Bob is dead, and so are Jimmy and Evelyn, who died before they could see the special exhibit.]]
--> '''Evelyn''': Stilwell, angel, smile...!
