Women in sport movies

A League of Their Own
Probably one of the most famous women in sport movies, this 1992 comedy-drama tells the fictionalised account of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. The movie was full of famous faces, including Geena Davis, Lori Petty, Tom Hanks, Madonna and Rosie O'Donnell. A little fact we picked up on Wikipedia: The Jimmy Dugan proclamation, "Are you crying? There's no crying! There's no crying in baseball!" was rated 54th on the American Film Institute's list of the greatest film quotes of all time.
