A League Of Their Own (1992)

Penny Marshall hits the ball out of the park ;-) with her tribute to the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League.  Geena Davis leads an all star cast in this heartwarming dramedy. Tom Hanks rebounds from Bonfire of the Vanities.  Madonna rebounds from, well, her entire movie career while Rosie O'Donnell steals third base, er, several scenes, as wisecracking Doris.  If you should find yourself tearing up during the emotional scenes, just remember - there's no crying in baseball!
