Throwback Thursday Quizzo & Movie: A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN
A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN
PENNY MARSHALL | USA | 1992 | 128 MIN
In honor of Women’s History Month, join us for a rousing game of America’s pastime (quizzo, of course) with the ladies of the Rockford Peaches. Based on the true story of America’s first female baseball pros, A League of Their Own boasts a memorable band of characters including reluctant MVP Dottie Hinson (Geena Davis), her scrappy younger sister Kit (Lori Petty), and their good-hearted but frequently inebriated coach Jimmy Duggan (Tom Hanks). Taking the stigma out of “throwing like a girl,” this empowering ode to female strength and sisterhood truly hits it out of the park.
