Trivia:
During filming of the World Series games, stars took turns entertaining the unpaid extras. Tom Hanks did puppet shows over the dugout, Rosie O'Donnell did stand-up comedy; and various actors pretended to be Madonna and sang her songs after the singer balked at performing for the fans.See more »
Goofs:
Factual errors: When Dottie and Kit first meet Mae and Dorris at try outs, Kit looks around and comments, "Are all these girls going to be in the league?" It is then revealed that out of the 100 girls that were at try outs, only 64 girls would be select to make up four teams of 16 girls. 32 girls received train tickets home. During the actual 1944 AAGBL tryouts in Chicago, scouts sent 280 girls to the try outs, but only 60 girls were selected to form four team of 15. 220 girls were given train tickets home.See more »

FAQ

If there are only four teams in the league, how do the Peaches "make the playoffs" before the World Series? Would a pre-Series playoff series imply each team made the playoffs?

Penny Marshall's Absolute Home Run, 22 December 2005
Author: jobennett86 from United States

I am not a movie-goer. I watch everything on video or cable. I have seen League of Their Own no less than 50 times, and each time, I'm delighted and amazed at the comedic thought and timing that Penny Marshall put into this movie. This is the only movie that I can quote verbatim during the dialogue. Such gems as when Jimmy Dugan asks why the bus stopped, then "Betty Spaghetti" informs him that "Lou quit." Dugan screams, "Who's Lou?!" And on another Dugan rant, when Rosie O'Donnell's character mumbles, "Is that English?" The expression on the scout's face when he sees how, er, plain-looking Marla looks. His explanation that he has to go home after dropping his recruits off for tryouts, because he needs to shower, shave, and "give the wife some pickle tickle." Beyond the funny, fine performances, though, this film has a sweet sadness that makes it real. In the end, these former professional athletes who made it to their golden years come back to be honored in the Baseball Hall of Fame and play in a virtual homecoming game. They all look pretty much like the grandma who you love or who lives down the street from you, but you know that they're women who were brought together because they all had the guts, determination and talent to change the face of American sports.
