A League of Their Own: le cose da sapere

There are some useful things to know before getting into watching the series, which will be available in streaming in a few hours.

Directed by Penny Marshallthe film was released in theaters in 1992. The series Prime Video was written from this old film script, which was itself based on true story told by Kelly Candaelethe daughter of Helen Callaghan.

Callaghan was one former baseball player who attended for five seasons in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball Leaguealso winning the “batting title” in 1945. His is a remarkable story precisely because it takes place in years in which female sport he was frowned upon or little regarded, if not entirely opposed and ridiculed. Candlestick – who is an American politician, director, teacher and writer – told about her mother’s sporting life in a documentary (always entitled A League of Their Own) and then, in fact, in the screenplay of the film released in 1992. The upcoming series is therefore a new adaptation of the story.
