It’s been 25 years since A League Of Their Own came out. 25 years and it seems like just yesterday. The movie may be better today then it was then. Just look at the star power of the movie Geena Davis, Tom Hanks, Jon Lovitz, Madonna, Garry Marshall, Lori Petty, Bill Pullman, David Strathairn, Rosie O’Donnell, Garry Marshall and Tea Leoni. And directed by the awesome Penny Marshall. It has hit written all over it!
A sports comedy/drama movie about an All-American Girls Baseball league that had you guested it women playing baseball. It was 1943 and World War II was going on. Worried that baseball might be shut down the owner of the Cubs gets the rest of the baseball owners to finance the league. What happens next is women are recruited and end up playing the season. The movie follows the girls that end up in Chicago up and through the World Series. At the end of the movie in present day we learn the fate of the girls on this team.
The movie is based on a true story and Penny Marshall did an awesome job directing it and showing what women can do when given the chance.
