Storyline

The owners of the baseball teams, not wanting baseball to be dormant indefinitely, decide to form teams with women. So scouts are sent all over the country to find women players. One of the scouts, passes through Oregon and finds a woman named Dottie Hinson, who is incredible. He approaches her and asks her to try out but she's not interested. However, her sister, Kit who wants to get out of Oregon, offers to go. But he agrees only if she can get her sister to go. When they try out, they're chosen and are on the same team. Jimmy Dugan, a former player, who's now a drunk, is the team manager. But he doesn't feel as if it's a real job so he drinks and is not exactly doing his job. So Dottie steps up. After a few months when it appears the girls are not garnering any attention, the league is facing closure till Dottie does something that ... Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Trivia

Goofs

In the scene where Marla is trying out in the gym and she hits the ball though the window you can tell that the ball is going though two different windows. The first shot is from inside the gym and the ball breaks through the window at the corner of the building in a direction towards the corner of the building. The next shot is from outside the building and the ball is not coming out of the corner window, but the window next to it, and not in the same direction as the ball was hit from inside the building. The angle at which the ball came out of the building would never be possible from where Marla was hitting the ball. See more »

Pleasant Experience.
3 July 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"A League of Their Own" tells a story that is rarely discussed in historical circles. The country is immersed in World War II and it is up to the women to keep professional baseball going. The film follows the sometimes rocky relationship between two sisters (Geena Davis and Lori Petty) who go from a small town in the midwest to the major leagues. Tom Hanks does outstanding work as the former player who now manages their team. Madonna and Rosie O'Donnell are among the other girls on the team who keep Hanks on his toes. Penny Marshall's direction is very solid here and she tells the story with a dignified style and grace that works well on the silver screen. A very good comedy-drama from the early-1990s. 4 stars out of 5.
