A League Of Their Own

About A League Of Their Own

With the ranks of professional baseball depleted by players going off to war, in 1943 minor leagues were closing down and it was feared the majors might do the same. Thus was born the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. Tom Hanks stars as washed-up ballplayer Jimmy Dugan, who is hired to coach a team of athletic and driven young women including Dottie Hinson (Geena Davis), the “baseball Dollie” with the Babe Ruth swing, her younger sister Kit Keller (Lori Petty), and teammates Mae Mordabito (Madonna) and Doris Murphy (Rosie O’Donnell).
