'A League Of Their Own' Is Coming To TV And We're Hoping It's A Home Run

- Page 1

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.

Here's what they have planned for the reboot so far:

8 Young Celebrities We Grew Up Watching Who Ended Up Behind Bars

You might think that growing up in the spotlight would be difficult, but you would hope that having money at a young age would help set you up for a successful future. As we've learned over the years, that is not always the case. As it turns out, being pushed into the spotlight and having people judge you while you go through puberty is apparently not all that good for you. Who would have guessed? Can you sense the sarcasm? Going through this intense scrutiny at such a young age isn't really that great, and not everyone handles it as

'Mad About You' Stars Officially Sign On To A Revival And Reveal What They've Got Planned

We knew it was a possibility that Mad About You would come back, and now it's looking as though it's a lot more likely as both former stars have signed on for a revival. In the last year alone, we've seen two other huge 90s hits come back and exceed expectations. Will & Grace came back to NBC after a political commercial kind of took over everyone's minds and we realized we wanted more. And of course there is Roseanne as well, which has been killing it in the ratings every episode. It's honestly only a matter of time before all

It's Been Over 20 Years Since 'Space Jam' Came Out, But What Ever Happened To The Monstars?

Since the Looney Tunes started, they have been able to bring together the entire world with their hilarious cartoons. Whether we were watching Bugs give a haircut, Wile E. Coyote chase the Roadrunner, or Sylvester go after Tweety, there were infinite possibilities and all were entertaining. But one story really beat out the rest as the most memorable, and that was Space Jam. You might not think that a silly 90s movie about basketball could top decades of cartoons, but guess what, it was pretty freakin' awesome if you ask me. Warner BrosSpace Jam came out in 1996 and it

20 Movies From The 90s That Still Make You Sob Uncontrollably

Watching movies was the ultimate treat on a weekend. Our parents would let us help them pick out the best movies possible at Blockbuster and we would watch it all together. But as we got older, we didn't want to just rent whatever cartoon had come out that week. We wanted to watch something new and exciting. We wanted our parents to think of us as young adults now. We weren't children, we were capable of understanding complicated emotions. The problem was, we were not ready for the levels of emotion these movies gave us. I remember the first movie
