The real stars behind A League of Their Own, the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, will be reuniting on Friday and Saturday in Cooperstown, N.Y., at the Baseball Hall of Fame. The reunion is taking place in honor of the movie's 20th Anniversary Blu-ray release.
"[Director] Penny Marshall put us on the map. If it weren't for the movie, nobody would have known we existed," said Betsy Jochum, 91, an outfielder and pitcher for the South Bend Blue Sox from 1943 to 1948.
The ladies are in their late 70s and 80s now, but some will even be taking the field Saturday as part of a softball game against a local Syracuse team at Alliance Bank Stadium in Syracuse.
