After nearly 25 years, The ‘A League of their Own’ cast reunites!

From L to R.  Megan Cavanagh (Marla Hooch), Tracy Reiner (Betty “Betty Spaghetti” Horn), Geena Davis (Dottie Hinson), Patti Pelton (Marbleann Wilkenson), Anne Ramsay (Helen Haley), and Freddie Simpson (Ellen Sue Gotlander) via US Weekly.
On this past Sunday in Bentonville, Arkansas, six of the great film’s cast of "A League of their Own" reunited for a ball game at the Bentonville Film Festival- which was founded by lead cast member Geena Davis and co founded with Trevor Drinkwater. Wearing their imitation Rockford Peaches baseball team uniforms as they wore in the movie, the cast members shared laughs, posed for photos, and interacted with the crowd during a small baseball game in conjunction with the festival. The festival is a ‘research based and commercial focused platform that proactively supports diverse storytellers, champion woman, and diverse voices in media".

Unfortunately, Tom Hanks (Coach Jimmy Dugan)  Madonna, ('All the way Mae'/Mae Mordabito), Rosie O'Donnel (Doris Murphy), and Dottie Henson’s kid sister in the film Kit Keller played by Ms. Lori Petty, were not able to make it to the festivities. That would’ve been nice if they could have; event wise and for the photo ops.

"A League of their Own" is one of the few movies that I own and still watch every time it comes on television.  It’s, also, one of the few that makes me shed a tear.. each time I watch it- no one understands lol since it’s not a sad movie. I had a future post lined up to explain that, inspired by VSB, that hopefully will make it out the drafts box...

s.o. to Uproxx
