Unfortunately, the high-definition debut of the 1992 comedy film doesn’t include any new special features. All the extras on the disc were already available on the Special Edition DVD released in 2004. Here’s the list:
- director and cast commentary
- 15 deleted scenes with optional video introductions with director Penny Marshall
- featurette “Nine Memorable Innings” including interviews with the cast and fillmakers
- music video for Madonna’s “This Used to Be My Playground.”
Remember this movie? If not, A League of Their Own stars Tom Hanks (Road to Perdition) as a down-and-pretty-much-out baseball player who has taken to the bottle while the world is battling WWII. With the men’s professional baseball league on hold, Hanks takes a job coaching a team in the first professional women’s league, which is set up to basically give some entertainment and keep morale up during the war. No one told the women players, though. Led by Geena Davis (Thelma & Louise) and her sister Lori Petty (Point Break), the women approach baseball with a vengeance.
Rated PG, A League of Their Own grossed a tidy $107 million when it was in theaters in 1992, and we’re glad to see it finally on Blu-ray.
