A Documentary Of Their Own

I spotted the news of the Rockford Peaches reunion over at Tom McMahon's blog, but was hoping after the event there would be more news, more photos and perhaps even a site for the latest documentary; but no such luck. Even the Midway Village & Museum Center's exhibit info is rather slim (bummer), but check it out anyway.

The Rockford Peaches, you may recall, were the team in Penny Marshall's A League of Their Own, with the character of Dottie Hinson (Geena Davis) loosely based on Dottie Green. And while some, such as former baseball player Doris Sams, say the film was "about 30 percent truth and 70 percent Hollywood," I think you should see if reel life was that different from real life.

If you're a fan of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, go see the official website of the AAGPBL,which sadly has no info on the recent event in Rockford, Illinois, but does give some details on the history of A League of Their Own.
