"Ow. Doesn't that hurt them?

Doesn't seem to.

Well, it would bruise the hell out of me."

I always found it interesting that one of the best baseball movies isn't even about guys

My grandma was around 7-8 years old when the AAGPBL was in it's heyday.  She told me stories about how when she was that age she would sneak out to the sandlot and play baseball with all the neighborhood boys.  She wouldn't tell them she was a girl, and she would even play skins when the other team was shirts (she was around 8 years old at the time).  When her dad found out she caught hell.

Even in her older age she would come to my little league baseball practices and help out our coaches.  She may have been a tiny woman but she put some mustard on her throws and could field at shortstop better than anyone out there.  As she got older she still dominated at our family softball games.

Much respect to the women ballplayers.

Huh, I could have sworn that she died a year or two ago.  Glad to see that I was wrong but now sad to be truly right.  I'm glad that her story was told & that it turned out to be such a great movie.  Greatest generation indeed...

RIP

Batter up! Hear that call!
The time has come for one and all
To play ball.

We come from cities near and far.
We've got Canadians, Irishmen and Swedes,
We're all for one, we're one for all
We're All-Americans!

Each girl stands, her head so proudly high,
Her motto 'Do or Die.'
She's not the one to use or need an alibi.

Our chaperones are not too soft,
They're not too tough,
Our managers are on the ball.

We've got a president who really knows his stuff,
We're all for one, we're one for all,
We're All-Americans!

What if, at a key moment in the game, my bosoms pop out?

Do think there's anybody left who hasn't seen your bosoms?

Tits or gtfo?

Great movie, and very glad this short era of sports was not forgotten in the dustbin of history.

Beats me.  This was Florida in the '40s so it's like another planet as far as I'm concerned.

Kevin Millwood, the guy that I would never, under any circumstances, put in a game when playing as the '98 Braves

I'm a guy that will defend this as the best sports movie to date, eat it Bull Durham

Calehedron: Wasnt Lori Petty's character the catcher/welder?


No, Lori Petty was the pitcher, her sister Geena Davis was the catcher... and no one welded.

High Fast Balls
