We all learned that there was "no crying in baseball," but apparently there is a lot of laughter, because A League of Their Own is coming back, but this time as a half-hour sitcom!
The classic 90s movie about the baseball league that was created during the second World War stole audience's hearts, and they are hoping that there are still a few home run stories to tell with a new show.
It's kind of a reboot, so I get it if you're hesitant, but even if you don't like the new show, there's always the original movie to go back to.
The original movie had a huge cast of characters, many of which have gone on to become enormous stars. Tom Hanks as the cranky coach was obviously an amazing choice, but it was the team of women that really made the movie.
Geena Davis and Lori Petty managed to represent that sisterly bond that anyone who has their own sister knows, while the rest of the team was absolutely perfect. Between "All the Way" Mae and Betty "Spaghetti," the whole team was full of unique and well developed characters that honestly gave a lot of depth to the story.
The one thing about a movie is that there isn't a lot of time to look into the side characters, so now they are looking to expand the world by turning A League of Their Own into a TV show! It makes sense, it was a successful property and basically everything that made any amount of money is rebooted and repackaged now, but let's see what were in for before we get too mad.
