Major League - Weather in Cleveland?
At the end of the movie, the final game of the season is a one-game playoff game to determine the winner of the division (not to mention that the Yankees and the Indians are not even in the same division, but thats another slip up of its own). But the fact that this game, if following a normal major league baseball schedule should be played the first week in October, in Cleveland, where the temperature should be anywhere from 40-50 degrees, yet everyone in the stadium is wearing shorts and short-sleeved shirts. A little chilly are we?

About the different division thing: when the movie was made (1989?) the Yanks and Indians were in the same division. They are not now due to expansion and change from two-division to 3-division format.

I am from New England, and the weather in October can get up to 80ยบ. You never know if it was really 40 or 50 degrees.

Mike...actually the home team is decided by a coin toss. It can't be hosted by the team with a better record, because if the Yankees had a better record, they wouldn't be tied!!!

The thing about the tie-breakers: if two teams are tied, that means they have the same record, so neither team had a better record. Also, home-field for one-game play-offs were, and still are, I believe, determined completely by coin flip.

Think about this one. In Major League Baseball, when two teams meet for a 1-game playoff, it's the team with the better record that hosts the game. So since the Yankees had been killing the Indians all season, why was the game in Cleveland?
