Here’s what the cast of ‘A League Of Their Own’ looks like 25 years later

Before you were even aware of feminism as a concept, you were probably in awe of how A League Of Their Own made you feel. Ladies, hopefully that feeling was something akin to empowerment.

The film, directed by Hollywood legend Penny Marshall, is a true story about a group of women who took up bats and gloves while American men took up arms during World War 2. They battled the sheer sexism of baseball fans, reporters, clubhouses, and even their own families. When I think of the Rockford Peaches I’m reminded of the girls I knew growing up who were inspired by this film. The girls who said “I wanna play ball, I wanna get dirty, I wanna push myself as hard as I can.”

The story told and the individual lives captured in this film will always be iconic. If you’re feeling like reminiscing, hitch up your socks and head down memory lane towards the ballpark.
