‘No Crying in Baseball: The Inside Story of ‘A League of Their Own’By Erin Carlsonc.2023, Hachette Books$29/320 pages You don’t usually think of Madonna as complaining of being “dirty all day” from playing baseball.
But that’s what the legendary diva did during the shooting of “A League of Their Own,” the 1992 movie, beloved by queers. “No Crying in Baseball,” the fascinating story behind “A League of Their Own,” has arrived in time for the World Series.
Nothing could be more welcome after Amazon has cancelled season 2 of its reboot (with the same name) of this classic film. In this era, people don’t agree on much.
Yet, “A League of Their Own” is loved by everyone from eight-year-old kids to 80-year-old grandparents. The movie has strikes, home runs and outs for sports fans; period ambience for history buffs; and tears, laughs and a washed-up, drunk, but lovable coach for dramady fans.
