A League Of Their Own Celebrates 25th Anniversary
I remember the first time my husband said to my now 10 year old “there is no crying in baseball”. Our son then 7 looked at him confused shrugged his shoulders and walked away. We then looked at each other and laughed knowing one d,y A League Of Their Own would make a family movie night. Fast forward 3 years , after a day on 4 yes 4 different ball fields our family pizza movie night featured A League Of Their Own 25th Anniversary Blu-Ray.
On April 18th Sony Pictures released A League Of Their Own 25th Anniversary Edition on Blu-Ray. Featuring an all new bonus featurette “Bentonville, Baseball & The Enduring Legacy of A League Of Their Own.” An unforgettable visit to the annual softball game at the Bentonville Film Festival. The Blue-Ray also includes hilarious and insightful special features, including 15 deleted scenes , a documentary with the cast and filmmaker interviews.
About the Movie:
Celebrate the 25th Anniversary of this hilarious and beloved comedy, starring Tom Hanks, Geena Davis and Madonna. With baseball lineups and locker rooms empty during World War II, the newly founded All American Girls Baseball League (AAGPBL). The AAGPBL brought talented women to the big leagues and brought fans to the stands. The indomitable Dottie Hinson (Davis) finds herself leading a rag tag group of players who end up winning over the heart of their has been coach Jimmy Dugan (Tom Hanks). Lori Petty , Rosie O’Donnell and Jon Lovitz round out the all star roster. Based on the true story of the pioneering women who blazed the trail for generations of athletes.
As we were watching the film whose run time is 128 minutes our son had his eyes glued to the Television. He asked lots of questions about the AAGPBL , World War II and letting us know Rosie O’Donnell is hysterical. At one point in the movie we all started to laugh. He then said to us OHHHH that’s where it comes from! Yes you guessed it , we had gotten to that famous “There is no crying in baseball ” line.
