Comments on: Which Red Sox Game Was Featured in ‘The Town’? http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/10150 This and that about baseball stats.

The Sox were wearing their red top uniforms so it was a Friday night. It's clearly Ortiz at bat. And then you can see the score for a second, Toronto is leading 3-0 in the 4th. Hello baseball-reference. And you're done.

I have seen the movie and that is Benny in the green. Coughlin is in the red and Slaine is the big dude in the white

Thanks for the pic! Did you get up close to Ben...or Jennifer 🙂 ?

Probably directly beneath the giant boom hanging over his head in front of the right edge of the scoreboard. I haven't seen the movie yet, but I'm guessing that's him in the green jacket with the white stripes on the sleeves.

I was at that game in the RF Grandstands and took a photo of Affleck. The iphone tagged the game 8/28/2009.

Its been a while since I've seen the TOWN, but if i remember correctly, Remmer and Afleck are wearing baseball hats in the stadium/game scene. I could be wrong. But if they were, this usually shows that time has elapsed between the two shoots - more than what is depicted in the film. Without a good continuity editor or director on set, hair cuts and facial hair fluctuate a bit too much, hence the hats. There are even films where actors where whigs, just so this problem doesn't arise.
Also, I'd imagine a great deal of the gunfighting and explosions were done on a closed set, made to recreate Yawky Way, and was intercut with establishing shots. Obviously, you want a secure location to 'blow up cop cars' - but cities are notorious for raking studios across the coals when it comes to location work. So now, most studios shoot the absolute minimum on actual locations, just the major stuff to establish 'we' are really there. If you notice, most NYC streets come to perpendicular turns in film, while any NYer knows no such street exists in upper Manhattan.
And lastly, while they do case the joint during a Blue Jay game, it is never mentioned when the case takes place, so obstensibly, it could be weeks or days before the heist.

Revealing mistakes: While the gang prepares to rob Fenway Park after the Red Sox-Yankees series, the TV shows a game between the Red Sox and Toronto.

The scene I saw filmed was on Thursday. It was only the shootout (though I'm sure there were plenty of cameras within Fenway at the same time). I'm guessing the other heist scenes (money room, etc) were filmed at different times that week. The Sox were out of town all that week and came back in to town on Monday to play the Jays, when I'm guessing they filmed the very quick scene at the game...

Of course, I could be wrong...
