There's no crying in baseball!
On Sunday, at the Bentonville Film Festival in Bentonville, Arkansas, a good chunk of the cast of 1992 hit A League of Their Own reunited for a baseball game!
The reunion was partially organized by star Geena Davis, who cofounded the six-day film festival to help empower women and female voices in the media.

Geena attended along with costars Tracy Reiner, Anne Ramsay, Freddie Simpson, Megan Cavanaugh, and Patti Pelton; unfortunately, Tom Hanks, Lori Petty, Rosie O'Donnell, and Madonna couldn't make it out.
The 60-year-old actress said of the get together:

Screen and television legend Geena Davis is joining up with the forces of Shonda Rhimes's most famous television program - Grey's Anatomy!
The epic collaboration will happen on the long running ABC medical drama's eleventh season, and the lovely lady will appear in a major arc on the show!
We're so excited for this news for a variety of reasons, but mainly we're interested to see if Geena still has that magic touch that she displayed on her last television series gig - Commander in Chief - and Geena's arrival definitely helps with the loss of Sandra Oh!
Props to the television flagship program's brass for keeping this ah-mazing show interesting despite all of the years it's been around.
Something that is much harder than it looks!
Oh, and congratulations, Geena!!!

Here's beautiful photographic evidence of what's most likely the first movie selfie EVER taken…
23 years ago!!
Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis reunited to update their iconic Polaroid pic from 1991's Thelma & Louise — but this time, they used a smart phone and uploaded to Twitter!
Hurray for Technology!
Susan captioned the flaw-free snap:

Remember way back in 1991 when Brad Pitt and his rock hard abs broke into the film industry with a bit part in Thelma & Louise?
Of course you do, it was a watershed moment in cinematic history!!!
What you probably didn't know about his tiny
package part, however, is that the then Z-list actor was only paid $6,000 for his troubles!!
Six grand?! Whaaaaaaat?!
These days that would barely get you a cup of coffee & two hours with a high-end Hollywood escort!! Even back then $6K probably seemed like

It’s rare to find an actress who is can pull off drama and comedy, but Geena Davis is one of those gems!
You may remember seeing her wearing the A League Of Their Own costume while practicing archery awhile back.
And now we get to see the finished product!
Ch-ch-check out the HIGHlarious video (above) to see her kick a**, and you can see the BTS footage (below) too.

She’s still got it!
The people over at Funny Or Die are clearly baseball movie fans, because they are helping everyone re-live one of the best ones ever!
They got Geena Davis to dress up in her Dottie Hinson uniform from the flick A League Of Their Own for their recent shoot in El Lay.
And she looks just as good as she did in 1992! Still a gorgeous Rockford Peach, isn't she!
We’re still trying to wrap our heads around the fact that the movie is that old, and she managed to not age a day!
Anyway, Geena is using her sweet archery skills by holding a bow and arrow instead of an ol' timey baseball bat! After all, she IS an Olympic archeress!
We can’t wait to see how the spot turns out!!!

Seth MacFarlane has not won the women over.
Nope, not one bit.
After attempting to gain a few chuckles with his We Saw Your Boobs song at the Oscars, he gained a few enemies instead.
Jane Fonda and Lena Dunham have already voiced their dislike of the controversial song, but now Geena Davis is joining the group.
It ain't looking good, Seth.
She recently spoke out about how the offensive Boobs song overshadowed so many strong moments for women including an animated cartoon with a strong female lead, Brave, winning this year.
