'League of Their Own' cast reunites on the baseball field after 24 years

Geena Davis Reunites With 'A League Of Their Own' Cast For Ballgame

Geena Davis and the Rockford Peaches were ready to play ball this weekend.

The 60-year-old actress -- who played Dottie Hinson in the film -- reunited with the cast of the 1992 film, A League of Their Own, for a friendly game of baseball at the 2nd Annual Bentonville Film Festival Championing Women And Diverse Voices In Media, which Davis co-founded, in Bentonville, Arkansas.

Davis, along with Megan Cavanagh (Marla Hooch), Anne Ramsey (Helen Haley), Tracy Reiner (Betty 'Betty Spaghetti' Horn), Ann Cusack (Shirley Baker), Freddie Simpson (Ellen Sue Gotlander), and Patti Pelton (Marbleann Wilkenson), were suited up in their Peaches uniforms for the big game. Madonna and Rosie O'Donnell, however, were not in attendance.

"I immediately noticed that there were a lot more male characters than female characters in what was actually being made for little kids, and I was horrified. What message does that send? Truly, they should be showing boys and girls sharing the sandbox equally, with girls doing half of the interesting stuff, too."
