On this show, we will hear from #WinningWomen looking to highlight the history of women in baseball, as well as create opportunities for the next generation of females playing America's pastime. A League of Their Own brought to light a lost history of women in the game. Since, the cast continues to offer support to sharing the stories of the past, while paving the way for the future.
On July 1st, members of the cast of A League of Their Own accompany players from the All America Girls Professional Baseball League (AABPBL) to celebrate the Rockford Peaches at MCU Park in Brooklyn, NY. Megan Cavanagh (Marla Hooch), Tracy Reiner (Betty "Spaghetti" Horn), Shirley Burkovich (AAGPBL player) and Maybelle Blair (AAGPBL player) were honored by the Cyclones. The quartet participated in a Winning Women Power Panel with fellow Winning Women honorees Perry Barber (umpire) and Mary Beck (MLB VP of Marketing & Promotion).
The show will include clips from the Cyclones celebration of the film, an interview with Perry Barber, and other opportunities to grow the game of baseball for girls and women.
