It gave us Dottie and Kit. It gave us "there's no crying in baseball!" It gave us a swing-dancing All The Way Mae, played by none other than Madonna.
Penny Marshall's 1992 classic A League of Their Own—starring a treasure trove of '90s icons including Geena Davis, Tom Hanks, Lori Petty, Rosie O'Donnell and, yes, her Madgesty herself—is a quintessential summer movie, a love letter to sisterhood and all of its complexities, and the best damn sports movie of all time (sorry not sorry, Kevin Costner).
It's such a homerun of a film that it was selected for preservation by the Library of Congress in 2012 for being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant." At the risk of mixing sports metaphors, a serve!
So it's no surprise that, 30 years after we first saw the Rockford Peaches get up to bat onscreen, an A League of Their Own reboot series is hitting the streaming world on Friday, August 12, with a fresh cast including Broad City queen Abbi Jacobson and a whole new set of women sluggers to fall in love with.
But, if you want to revisit the original film ahead of the new TV adaptation, here's what you need to know.
Where is 'A League of Their Own' streaming?
Not shockingly, just like the new reboot series of the same name, A League of Their Own is available for streaming on Amazon Prime Video. Currently, a Prime Video subscription is $8.99, or it's included with a general Amazon Prime membership at $14.99 per month or $139 annually.
Don't have Prime Video? A League of Their Own is also available to rent on Apple TV, Google Play Movies, Vudu and Youtube.
