    Seems like the producers were always a year behind when it came to the "Indians'" uniforms. The first movie came out in 1989, but the team wore 1988 uniforms. The second movie was released in 1994, the year the real "Indians" switched both uniforms and ballparks and the movie was a year behind again.

      Well, the first film was released in April 1989 which means it was filmed in 1988. Hence they wore the 1988 uniforms.

        Favorite fact: you never see Snipes throw.

        You never see him pay his taxes either. Bmmm-tish!

        1955 1959 1963 1965 1981 1988 2017?

          Exactly. Andy Gray tweeted about Major League's 25th Anniversary today and included a pic of Charlie Sheen from Major League 2.

          Chris Creamer retweeted an "Indians" tweet about a Ricky Vaughn bobblehead promotion and pointed out the bobblehead's uniform didn't have racing stripes on the jersey. The Major League "Indians" didn't have racing stripes in the first film, but the real team added them in 1989. The Major League 2 "Indians" had them, but of course outside of spring training, the real team had a brand switch in 1994.

            This really makes me feel old...I remember seeing it in the cinema with my parents when it first came out.

                Hilarious movie, great cast. Loved Uecker as Harry Doyle, guzzling the Jack Daniels in the booth. Loved Rene Russo, in virtually anything from this period, smokin' hot. Corbin Benson was terrific as the prima donna 3Bman. They went a bit over the top on a couple of the gags, like having them sleep on cots in a barracks in spring training, or having them traveling in a bus after the ancient DC-3 they had for a team plane broke down. Having them fly in the DC-3 was good enough, plus it was funny when they just taped a broken prop. The plane looked cool with the Indians logo.

                The sequels sucked.

                  Harry Doyle's great line about the Indians losing a game due to "propeller lag" (a play on "jet lag") was brilliant! Hahahahaha. Did the Indians really have a DC-3 as a team airplane?

                    Maybe in 1953.
