A couple of years ago the good people at the Baseball Prospectus figured out exactly which game in real life it was that Matthew Broderick and company went to to film those scenes. (A Cubs vs. Giants baseball game.) Thirty years ago today.
Anyone? Bueller. Bueller.
That scene was in an economics class, by the way.
