As baseball season heads into playoffs and the World Series, there is a film that hits a home run every time I watch it, “A League of Their Own,” which airs at 8 p.m. on CMT.While men were fighting overseas during World War II, women back home in the States went to work and also provided entertainment as the first women's professional baseball league was formed.

In this story, two sisters (played by Geena Davis and Lori Petty) start out on the same team but form a rivalry after the younger sister is traded to another team.

How much do you remember about the film?

1. Who directed this 1992 classic film?

2. Who played the drunken ex-baseball player manager Jimmy Dugan?

3. Who played best-gal pass “All the Way” Mae Mordabito and Doris Murphy?

4. What was the name of baseball team Dugan managed?

5. What was Dottie Hinson's position on the team?

6. What baseball team did Dugan play for before alcohol killed his career?

7. Kit Keller was traded to which team?

8. What were the names of the other two all-women baseball teams?

Answers: 1. Penny Marshall. 2. Tom Hanks. 3. Madonna and Rosie O'Donnell. 4. Rockford Peaches. 5. Catcher. 6. Chicago Cubs. 7. Racine Belles. 8. Kenosha Comets and South Bend Blue Sox.
