‘A League Of Their Own’: 13 Incredible Facts You Never Knew About The Iconic Flick

After the success of Penny Marshall’s 1988 film Big starring Tom Hanks, the director and actor joined forces again in 1992 for one of the most empowering movies of all time: A League of Their Own.

Before diving into the directorial world and making a name for herself as a serious moviemaker, Penny was famous as one half of the hilarious sitcom Laverne & Shirley.
