Movie synopsis

While all the American men are fighting against the nazis in WW II, the American baseball league decides to keep the professional league running with women teams. Dottie (Geena Davis) and Kit (Lori Petty) are among the women, who are discovered by a scout and given a chance to escape their dull life as a housewife. The Chicago Peaches soon learn that they're not taken very serious, not even by their coach Jimmy (Tom Hanks). Until they show the men they sure know how to play ball. Not only do the women get respect and success, they also learn about teamplay and friendship.
