A League Of Their Own is one of our favorite sports films because it not only shined a spotlight on the difficulties women athletes face, but it starred some of our favorites like Madonna!
To get the part though, these gals couldn't just look like good baseball players, they had to BE good baseball players!
While Rosie O'Donnell (also a star in the film) was interviewing Penny Marshall on her talk show, the director revealed that actresses auditioning for a part had to first pass "the baseball test."
To even be considered, they had to play the game and be evaluated by some of the sport's best coaches!
So inneresting! Check out the video above to learn all about the secret to casting one of the best baseball movies of all time!
