A League of Their Own Gifts
It's time to play ball... or at least celebrate the All American Girls Professional Baseball League, anyway. Penny Marshall's A League of their Own knocked a homerun right for our hearts thanks to all of the great characters, many of them inspired by real people. Whether it's time for the great American pastime or even when we're fighting wars, there's always time for baseball and for one of our favorite films. So, keep an eye on these A League of their Own gifts so you're ready to bring home the win.
If you only knew about the AAGPBL because of the film, here are a few details we're sure you'll love to collect. They were active between 1943 and 1954 when all the usual players were shipped off to help in World War II. There were over 600 players who competed in the 10 different teams throughout the midwest, gathering nearly a million folks who were eager to watch in the stadiums. The Rockford Peaches from the film was an actual team that brought home a total of four championships. In fact, in the final scene of the film at the Hall of Fame exhibit, the extras were all real players from the league!
If you're a real fan of the film or the historic league, it only makes sense to have a few collectibles to show off your fandom. The only thing more exciting than a pop fly hit is a few of our League of their Own Pop! vinyl figures. You'll never wonder what happened to old Jimmy Dugan or Dottie Hinson when they're ready for ball and sitting on your mantle. If you really want to send them to the Hall of Fame, you can pick up a protector case, too. You'll soon have your very own ALotO museum!
Perhaps you want to feel a bit more like part of the team. Well, in that case, you can start off by getting ready for the game with some of our League accessories. We have eye black paint and stickers as well as authentic-looking bats and gloves. Of course, if you want to slide into home and really get the media in a frenzy, you can also try out some of our A League of their Own costumes and wigs. We have costumes for all of the main characters from Jimmy's questionable coach look to Dottie and Kit's team costumes. They are perfect for a Halloween outing, a season of baseball antics, or a costumed marathon of your favorite baseball movies.
