If you loved the movie A League of Our Own, you’ll want to come see the real story behind the baseball players in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. With interviews with over 40 players, historical footage, and more, the new documentary A Team of Their Own looks at the people who pioneered women’s professional baseball and the impact of the League on women in sports.
A Team of Their Own will be shown on Thursday, April 28 at 6:30pm. After the screening, the film’s co-producer and GVSU history professor Dr. James Smither will comment and take questions. For anyone interested in women in sports, baseball, or the US homefront during World War II, this will be a fascinating chance to hear the stories of the All-American Girls Baseball League from the players themselves.
