“Something important has just happened. I was in the toilet reading my contract, and it turns out, I get a bonus when we get to the World Series. So, let’s play hard, let’s play smart, use your heads.” –Jimmy Dugan (Tom Hanks), A League of their Own
Sadly, the lewd, crude, and brooding coach was nowhere to be seen on the green at last weekend’s Bentonville Film Festival, but that didn’t stop the real stars of A League of their Own from reuniting.
Festival co-founder Geena Davis roped in a few of her on-screen teammates and rivals — Megan Cavanagh (Marla Hooch), Ann Cusack (Shirley Baker), Tracy Reiner (Betty Spaghetti), Anne Ramsay (Helen Haley), and Freddie Simpson (Ellen Sue) — for a short game of softball.
What’s more, they even had Gina Casey, an original player of the real-life All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, toss out the game’s first pitch. Catch photos below, then play ball. #nocrying
