It may come as a surprise to some that "A League of Their Own," the new motion picture starring Geena Davis, Tom Hanks, and Madonna, is based on fact. The All-American Girls Professional Baseball League(AAGPBL) was founded in 1943 by Philip Wrigley, with the encouragement of Branch Rickey and Bill Veeck.
