If you like baseball then you'll probably like this movie. I really enjoyed it. Though there are definite historical inaccuracies I found this film both entertaining and thought provoking. Though the movie takes poetic license, the truth is that women did have a place on the field at one time. It is fact that a young woman struck out both Babe Ruth and Lou Gherig. I could easily sit through this movie again. Anyone deeming this movie trash probably is very dismissive of the historical role that women really did play in Major League Baseball. Unlike other minorities, women are still barred from playing professionally or making the millions off of pro baseball that their male counterparts enjoy.

I have no great fascination for women's baseball today, and I have even less for some historical rehash. Add Geena Davis, Madonna, Lori Petty and Rosie O'Donnell, none of whom I find overly compelling and you end up with a pile of trash. Now I know more people like this movie than hate it, I just didn't find to be anything special.

My favorite baseball movie of all time, this flick tells the story of two sisters on the Rockport Peaches, who played in the women's baseball league during WWII. Tom Hanks is great as a washed up former Major Leaguer who is now managing the Peaches. His speech about crying in baseball is a classic. Good performances also by Geena Davis, Madonna, and Rosie O'Donnell.

Kit Keller: You ever hear Dad introduce us to people? "This is our daughter Dottie, and this is our other daughter, Dottie's sister." Should've just had you and bought a dog!
