18 of the Best Fictional Sports Teams We Always Root For
Rockford Peaches from A League of Their Own
Woman can do anything men can do — including playing baseball. This movie recounts a fictionalized version of the creation of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. When World War II threatens the existence of Major League Baseball, it’s decided that fans need an outlet, so why not create a woman’s league? Dottie (Geena Davis) leads the Rockford Peaches, a team of novice ladies trying to do something spectacular. Watching the ladies play against other all-female teams is as empowering as it gets for a sports movie. We love watching talented ladies do things people expect only men to do — and do them better!
