Geena Davis and the Cast of A League of Their Own Reunite for a Nostalgic Softball Game
There is no crying in baseball. Unless of course, you're witnessing a reunion the cast from one of the sport's most beloved classic films—then we'll let it slide.
For the second year in a row, Geena Davis brought the original cast of A League of Their Own together for a reunion softball game hosted by the Bentonville Film Festival in Bentonville, Ark. Twenty-four years after the film was released, Megan Cavanagh, Anne Ramsey, Tracy Reiner, Ann Cusack, Freddie Simpson, and Patti Pelton all hit the field over the weekend.
All the feels!
Gina Casey, a member of the All American Girls Professional Baseball League, which inspired the film, threw the opening pitch for the game.
Bentonville Film Festival (which Davis co-founded) focuses on empowering women and diverse voices in media. "This event was so popular last year that we decided to do it again," Davis said on the festival's website leading up to the event. "And I'm so thrilled to have six of my Rockford Peaches cast mates attending the game this year."
