League of Their Own

Penny Marshall’s film brings awareness and respect for the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League from 1943-1954.

On March 9, 2013 Doc gave a public lecture  about changing role of women during the war and the discriminatory and logistical obstacles they faced in defying traditional stereotypes at the Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front National Historical Park Visitor Education Center after a screening of 1992 movie A League of Their Own, about the All American Professional Girls Baseball League.
