Synopsis / Plot
Farmgirl sisters Dottie and Kit (Geena Davis and Lori Petty) are scouted by Ernie Capadino (Jon Lovitz) for a new Women's baseball league to replace the national game shuttered by the war. For most of the girls, including Mae Mordabito (Madonna) and Doris Murphy (Rosie O'Donnell) the league is an opportunity of a lifetime, and for unattractive star player Marla Hooch (Megan Cavanagh) it's a godsend. Chocolate baron Walter Harvey (Garry Marshall) puts exec Ira Lowenstein (David Strathairn) in charge of making the league work even though he intends to mothball it the moment the men can come back to play. Alcoholic ex-majors star Jimmy Dugan (Tom Hanks) is hired to manage Dottie and Kit's team and it takes some time for him to rise from his drunken stupor to find an interest in the new arrangement. For the women players aren't just "girls" - their spirit and teamwork embody the best in the game of baseball.
