Actress Geena Davis who portrayed Dottie Hinson from the hit film “A League of Their Own” (1992) has dressed up in her AAGPBL Rockford Peaches uniform. This iconic women’s baseball dress became famous twenty-one years ago when featured in the blockbuster film. Apparently actress Geena Davis was wearing this uniform during a commercial shoot.
In 1942, pro baseball players were being drafted in armed services. Next came the All American Girls Pro Baseball League (AAGPBL), which was branded in 1943 when ladies took the baseball fields to help retain baseball in America. “A League of Their Own” tells the story of two sisters who joined America’s first pro baseball league and shows their struggles to help the league succeed.
