Move over Field of Dreams.....A League of Their Own is the best damn baseball movie EVER. We'll bet all of our Rockford Peach baseball cards! ALoTO, from 1992 and directed by Penny Marshall chronicles the history of the All American Girls Professional Baseball League, a time from 1943 to 1954 when WOMEN played BASEBALL professionally because all of the men were at war! This movie will make you laugh, cry, hug your sister, and reminds you how awesome Tom Hanks and Gena Davis are. We've seen this movie 1000 times with (or without sound) and love it so. Come on and listen to us do fine renditions of "We're the members of the All American League..." and "This Used to be Be My Playground", discuss if Dottie dropped the ball on purpose or just had a really bad day, which Rockford Peach we like the most, and how the big band soundtrack and women kicking baseball butt in several montages gives us the internal goosebumps just like when we saw Wonder Woman! PS We kept calling the pitcher Ellen Sue, Sue Ellen because we're both still on a high from our Don't Tell Mom The Babysitter is Dead episode.
