That's not right: the 28 smallest yet biggest mistakes in sports movies

61* is a film based on the 1961 New York Yankees. Even more specifically, it focuses on Roger Maris’ quest to break Babe Ruth’s single-season home run record, which stood at 60. In the movie Bob Cerv, who was acquired by the Bronx Bombers in the middle of the season in a trade from the Angels, was spotted in the opening day scene already wearing pinstripes. Him being there didn’t change the outcome of the movie (if you really don’t know how it ends we won’t spoil it for you), but it’s enough to irk some baseball history fanatics.
