    Enjoyed "A League Of Their Own." Lavonne Paire-Davis was the inspiration for Geena Davis' character. RIP

    I would think there can't be very many ladies from the All-American Girl Professional Baseball League (AAGPBL) left.

    Wonderful movie - I need to go see the exhibit. As I mentioned on another thread, they wanted Demi Moore for the lead role. She was pregnant and it went to Davis instead.

    Still among my favorite films ... the background story was enough, but the quality of the production, casting and acting completed the gem.

    RIP, Ms. Paire-Davis and thank you for sharing the stories.
