Extra Credit: A League of Their Own

Tom Hanks, Geena Davis and Madonna star in this major-league comedy. Hanks is Jimmy Dugan, a washed-up ballplayer whose big league days are over. Hired to coach in the All-American Girls Baseball League of 1943, while the male pros are at war, Dugan finds himself drawn back into the game by the heart and heroics of his all-girl team.
