Tom Hanks, Geena Davis, Madonna, Lori Petty, and Rosie O’Donnell, star as a cynical manager and his baseball players in this fictionalized account of the real-life All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. When World War II threatens to shut down Major League Baseball, team owners bankroll a women’s league, forming four teams. Jimmy Dugan (played by Hanks) manages the Rockford Peaches as they play their way to the World Series.
