A League Of Their Own was one of the most iconic movies of the 90s. I know for me, it would come on TV at least once a month, and every time I would find myself drawn in, watching it even though I probably should have been doing anything else.
Between Geena Davis’s confident Dotti Hinson, and Tom Hanks’s cranky Jimmy Dugan, the movie was irresistible. Every character was well-developed and brought something to the movie, and together they told a story that touched a lot of hearts.
It has been over 25 years since A League Of Their Own came out, and we wanted to revisit the stars and see what they look like now. Let’s take a look!
Tom Hanks – Jimmy Dugan
Obviously we all know what Tom Hanks has been up to, because he is basically America’s favorite actor. He’s pleasant, sweet, and talented, and we are lucky to continue to be graced by his presence.
Geena Davis – Dottie Hinson
Geena Davis has been in a lot of projects over the last two decades, most recently in a movie called Marjorie Prime. One really interesting thing about Davis’s past is that she was actually almost an Olympic athlete. She tried out in 1999, two years after she took up archery. She ranked 24th out of 300, and while she didn’t make it onto the team, she did compete in the Sydney International Golden Arrow Competition.
Lori Petty – Kit Keller
After playing one of the best pitchers in the league Lori Petty hasn’t been seen as much as some of her costars, but she made a huge comeback by appearing on Orange is the new Black when she played Lolly Whitehill.
Madonna – Mae Mordabito
It’s been a while since Madonna acted, but she had been in quite a lot of movies in the 90s. Instead she has been focusing more on her music. Her most recent album came out in 2015 and she has been touring fairly recently since.
Rosie O’Donnell – Doris Murphy
People often forget how talented of an actress Rose O’Donnell was back in the 90s, because now all they remember is her fights with Donald Trump and her time on The View. But to me, she will always be Doris Murphy.
Megan Cavanagh – Marla Hooch
Megan Cavanagh gave us a lot of the comedic moments in the movie, and after finishing up with A League of Their Own she continued acting and also started voice acting as well. You may have heard her voice in Jimmy Neutron as Judy Neutron.
Tracy Reiner – Betty ‘Spaghetti’ Horn
Tracy Reiner continued acting until 2010, but mostly in smaller parts. She was supposed to have a new role coming up in a movie called Bogie and Bacall, but there is no date for it yet. Did you know that her stepfather is Rob Reiner and her mother is Penny Marshall?
Bitty Schram – Evelyn Gardner
Bitty Schram has continued acting fairly consistently. She was nominated for her role on Monk and has been in a handful of movies over the last 25 years.
And what about the rest of the team?
Ann Cusack – Shirley Baker
With famous siblings like John and Joan Cusack, you know that she’s got to keep acting. Cusack has been in many projects over the years, including Sully with her former costar Tom Hanks.
Anne Ramsay – Helen Haley
Anne Ramsay found her groove on the small screen, starring on Mad About You, The Secret Life Of The American Teenager, and Hart of Dixie.
Freddie Simpson – Ellen Sue Gotlander
Freddie Simpson stopped acting in 2002, but she did come out to the reunion to show her Peaches pride!
