It’s a movie that simultaneously highlights the impact of women during a critical time in U.S. history, celebrates the bonds of sisterhood, and explores the dynamics of sibling rivalry. 

It also happens to be one of America’s most beloved sports films, and to this day, remains the highest-grossing baseball movie of all time.

We are of course talking about the 1992 hit “A League of Their Own,” directed by Penny Marshall and boasting a powerhouse cast including Geena Davis, Lori Petty, Tom Hanks, Madonna, Rosie O’Donnell, and Jon Lovitz. 

From behind-the-scenes stories about filming to the tension caused by Madonna’s casting, to the controversial scene cut from the movie, to the hotly debated question of whether Dottie dropped the ball on purpose, we discuss all this and so much more!  *A special thank you to friend and listener Marsha for her audio clip.
