How well do you remember A League of Their Own?
by J.P. Naomi

"There's no crying in baseball!" There's no crying in this quiz either! We're in the bottom of the 9th. Can you knock this quiz out of the park?

While you might be familiar with the all-male MLB, take a trip to 1992 with the sports comedy, "A League of Their Own." Starring Tom Hanks, Geena Davis, and Madonna, this film followed a group of women and their manager as they formed their own baseball team in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. 

Proving itself to be "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant," this film was chosen to be preserved in the National Film Registry. Solidifying itself as one of the best films in history, how well do you remember the history of this film? 

Everyone knows that there's no crying in baseball, thanks to Tom Hanks! Who could forget Madonna's transformation from "Vogue" to swinging a baseball bat? While these are all easy to remember, can you remember the real facts? 

What was the name of Dottie's sister? What team did Geena Davis's character play on? Tom Hanks played which character? In the words of Jimmy Dugan, "It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it."

Everyone can't pass this quiz, but we want to see if you can! We're in the bottom of the ninth with two outs and the bases loaded. Can you hit a grand slam? Batter up!
