It'd be like filming inside Yankee Stadium and telling everyone it's Fenway Park.
It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the beans of Java that thoughts acquire speed, the hands acquire shakes, the shakes become a warning. It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion.
I was an extra in the crowd at Camden Yards during the filming of one of the scenes in Major League II. At the time I was working only a block away so me and a few others wandered over one night after work. The scene they were filming was one in which Sheen's character was walking in from the bullpen, "Wild Thing" playing over the speakers, etc. Well they didn't have enough people to fill the stadium so they kept asking everybody to change seats depending on the angle of the camera. They also used a lot of cardboard cutouts of people to help fill in the crowd.
Went back another night when they were filming a scene where Sheen and the blonde were walking to her car after a game. They talked, then she gives him a hug and gets into her car, says something and drives away. They must have run through it a dozen times, but it never made it into the movie.

I was an extra in Mr. 3000. They had all kinds of prizes for those that stuck around the longest. It was cool to see the rapid pace that the actors got right into the game play scene.
They had bused in some seat fillers and had a whole free meal thing for them too. Then these fine folks started taunting us suckers who actually bought Brewers tickets for the game that night and were sticking around for the movie filming. Thus our exit.
My Dad said he now "knew what prison felt like"... ha ha ... you know the scene when the new prisoner is walked through the main section of the prison and all the inmates yell and throw things down at him. Same thing from the upper deck.
