- The film was rushed for release while Babe Ruth himself was still alive, which is why the movie ends the way it does. Ruth died shortly after the premiere, which he attended.
- The scene at Yankee Stadium was shot hours before a real game was scheduled, and Babe came from his death bed to see it.
- William Bendix actually hit a ball over the right field fence (and was the first actor to do so).
