    Goofs: We know about 1 goofs. Here comes one of them:
    Errors in geography: The scene from the “Nationals'” bullpen where one of the Nats relief pitchers throws a note to a female fan in the stands was actually filmed in the visitors' bullpen at Nationals Park. The visitors' bullpen (in left-center field) is more open and sunny (scene was filed in the morning) while the real Nationals bullpen (in right field) is shaded by the stands above it.

    Trivia: There are 8 entries in the trivia list – like these:

    • Nicole Kidman didn't see the the original Broadway play when it premiered in 2006, but she read a review and called up a producer from her production company, Blossom Films. The following night he saw the play and afterwards set up a meeting with David Lindsay-Abaire about the film. Kidman later read the script and saw an Australian production.
    • John Cameron Mitchell was attracted by the script, and by the personal fact that at 14, he lost his 10-year-old brother to a heart problem; "It was a sudden, unexpected event. It defined a family forever and recovering from it was something we're still doing."
    • According to a New York Times article from August 2009, director Sam Raimi was attached to the project as a director, but withdrew to do Untitled Spider-Man Reboot (2012).
