League of Their Own is one of my favorite movies of all time. I remember my late brother calling me with the question. Did Dottie drop the ball on purpose? He had just seen the movie in the theater and he and his wife were arguing the point. I said "No". He said, "No". His wife said "Yes".
I have watched the movie many times since. It's nice seeing Wrigley Field featured in the film.
Kit was a whiny little sister. Dottie was the better player by far, but she did not drop that ball on purpose. No Way!
I have a lot of favorite movies that I watched as a child. I am a big James Cagney fan. Of course, I love Pat O'Brien. He was fantastic in Boys Town. My dad once confided in my brother that he spent time in Boys Town when he ran away from home due to his stepfather's mistreatment.
