"Every woman in Hollywood was reading for this movie"
July 1, 2017 6:22 PM Subscribe
Twenty-five years ago today, a sports movie premiered. Everyone expected it to be something a hit, with its crowd of high-powered actors (and even a pop star), immaculate Hollywood pedigree behind the cameras, and perfectly nostalgia-y and Bechdel-Test-passing cred. But not many people probably thought that A League of Their Own would go on to be the highest-grossing baseball movie of all time, nor that it would make the National Baseball Hall of Fame's "Diamond Dreams" exhibit about women in baseball one of the Hall's most popular areas. And yet, it doesn't get its due in discussions about The Greatest Sports Movies Of All Time; allow Katie Baker of The Ringer to explain why that is some hot garbage.
