A League Of Their Own

This film is about the all-women baseball League that played during WWII. It follows the story of two sisters (Geena Davis, Lori Petty) who play for the Rockford Peaches and how their relationship is tested as one becomes the star and the other is attention starved.

Continuity mistake: During the tryout/league formation sequence at Harvey (Wrigley) Field, every shot takes place at the famous stadium, except one. When Betty Spaghetti backpedals to catch a fly ball, the background shows a rickety wooden outfield fence, not Wrigley's famous ivy-covered walls. (00:25:20)
