Main image A League of Their Own (1992)

Tom Hanks, Geena Davis and Madonna star in this major-league comedy. Hanks stars as Jimmy Dugan, a washed-up ball player whose big league days are over. Hired to coach in the All-American Girls Baseball League of 1943 – while the male pros are at war – Dugan finds himself drawn back into the game by the heart and heroics of his “all-girl” team.

Jon Lovitz adds a scene-stealing cameo as the sarcastic scout who recruits Dottie Hanson, the “baseball dolly” with a Babe Ruth swing. Teammates Madonna, Lori Petty and Rosie O’Donnell round out the roster, taking the team to the World Series. Based on the true story of the pioneering women who blazed the train for generations of athletes, A League of Their Own is “a home run.”

In English, no subtitles, 127 mins.
