Trivia / Angels in the Outfield

  • California Doubling: Oakland Coliseum (in NorCal) stands in for Anaheim Stadium (in SoCal) for logistical reasons. At the time, Anaheim Stadium was a complete closed-off stadium due to upper deck seating in the outfield, so there would've been no way for the kids to peep into the game from the outside. The Angels' stadium is also located in a business area, while the Coliseum is in more of a residential location, where it would make sense that Roger could see the stadium from his house.
  • Playing Against Type: Warm-hearted funnyman Tony Danza appears as the film's most dramatic character.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Roger, and both Adrian Brody and Matthew Mc Conahgy have early roles as members of the Angels ball team.
