Reunited and it feels so good! The cast of A League of Their Own reunited to play a game of softball at the Bentonville Film Festival in Bentonville, Arkansas, on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 8. The exciting get-together comes 24 years after the iconic film was released in July 1992.
Six of the movie’s original cast members participated, including Tracy Reiner (Betty “Betty Spaghetti” Horn), Anne Ramsay (Helen Haley), Geena Davis (Dottie Hinson), Freddie Simpson (Ellen Sue Gotlander), Megan Cavanaugh (Marla Hooch) and Patti Pelton (Marbleann Wilkenson).
Lori Petty (Kit Keller), Rosie O’Donnell (Doris Murphy) and Madonna (Mae “All the Way” Mordabito) also appeared in A League of Their Own — which told fictionalized account of the real-life All American Girls Professional Baseball League — but they were unable to make the reunion.
Davis, 60, cofounded the Bentonville Film Festival, which was created to empower female voices in media. As fans will recall, the Thelma & Louise star rounded up several of her beloved “teammates” for last year’s event.
“This event was so popular last year that we decided to do it again,” the actress shared on the festival’s official website a few days before this year’s affair took place. “And I’m so thrilled to have six of my Rockford Peaches cast mates attending the game this year.”
