A league of their own download movie


The downloadable resource below is a part of PCA's collection of movie discussion guides, which aim to help you make the most out of movie viewing with your team or child. Movies provide a plethora of "teachable moments" that can be seized upon by coaches and parents to help young athletes take away lessons that will help them be successful, contributing members of society.

Partway into the pilot of the hotly anticipated Prime Video series A League of Their Own, Max Chapman -- a ringer of a pitcher -- arrives at the field where tryouts for the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League are under way. On that Midwestern field in the 1940s, the women are literally hitting it out of the park, sliding into home, and catching pop-up balls behind their backs with ease. There's a sense of joy among them, some housewives, others young women just out of school, for whom ballplaying was purely avocational, something they couldn't take seriously if there were a meal to cook, laundry to fold, dishes to wash -- that is, until the major leagues were gutted during World War II. With the male players off to war, they finally got their chance.

"This movie does not need to be remade, but the stories of this generation of women who not only dreamed of playing baseball but were fucking good at it were not fully told in the film, right? The real estate of a two-hour film versus [that] of a television show to really show those marginalized stories and the stories that the film overlooked [makes a difference]," Jacobson says. "Some of the aspects of that league that were overlooked in the film, we thought were really important. I don't think of it as a remake...the movie will be right over here whenever you want to watch it. And ours, hopefully, can exist right next to it. [The series] is expanding the lens a little bit to show more stories of athletes at the time."

Kat Williams: They had to wear dresses. They had to wear their makeup, the scenes in the movie where you got to fix your hair, you got to learn to cross your legs a certain way. They were not allowed off the team bus if they were in pants or shorts. We may be looking at, well, some overt act of sexism. That's what that is. That's built-in. That's inherent in these rules. They had to look like "the all-American girl." That, of course, at its core is sexism.

Melissa Harris-Perry: Despite the challenges they faced, these women proved to be truly in a league of their own. Professor Williams maintains that they were trailblazers who helped usher in some critical changes for sports.

Maybelle Blair: Well, it was so important. The reason why President Roosevelt wanted to keep baseball going for men and all the great ballplayers had to go into service and fight the war for us. He wanted to keep it going. He got with Mr. Wrigley. Mr. Wrigley and President Roosevelt, they formed a league of their own to keep Major League Baseball going. That's why it's so important.

The Rockford Peaches women's baseball team was founded in 1943 as part of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League (AAGPBL). The Peaches were a founding member of the league, and called Beyer Stadium in Rockford, Illinois their home. During the time of the AAGPBL, the Rockford Peaches were one of the most successful teams as they won the league championship of 1945, 1948, 1949, and 1950. The Rockford Peaches became immortalized through the 1992 movie A League of Their Own starring Tom Hanks, Geena Davis, Madonna and Rosie O'Donnell. The Peaches continued to play in the AAGPBL until the league ended in 1954.

I was only a kid when I first saw this movie, but I felt its importance even then. Seeing these women deal with the struggles of playing for an under-minded baseball league as they made their way to the big leagues was a tremendous experience. This movie gives you a glimpse into the challenges and barriers women faced especially in sports.
