Facts about

Sam McDaniel (Porter) and Dick Winslow (Bellboy) are in studio records/casting call lists as cast members for their roles, but they did not appear or were not identifiable in the movie. Joseph Crehan is credited as "Conductor," but he also was not seen.
All the uncredited roles of major league players were played by current or former professional baseball players.
When "Alibi Ike" was first released to TV in 1956, the sequences involving the gamblers and their attempts to have Ike "throw" the game were practically eliminated, reducing the length of the film by 20 minutes, unnoticed on commercial TV. The appearance of "Lefty", the head of the gambling syndicate, was reduced to just one scene as a spectator in the stands. Additionally, Ike arriving late for a game, enters the ballpark in a delivery vehicle that is towing autos. In the 50s edited version, what appears to be a usual prank on Ike's part is actually the result of Ike fleeing the gamblers.
