'A League of Their Own' Announced and Detailed for Blu-ray

Posted Tue Aug 7, 2012 at 12:00 PM PDT by

Penny Marshall's 1992 baseball comedy makes a pitch to Blu-ray this October.

In an early announcement to retailers, Sony will be bringing the PG film 'A League of Their Own' to Blu-ray on October 16.

Tom Hanks, Geena Davis and Madonna star in this major-league comedy from the team that brought you 'Big.' Hanks stars as Jimmy Dugan, a washed-up ballplayer whose big league days are over. Hired to coach in the All-American Girls Baseball League of 1943, while the male pros are at war, Dugan finds himself drawn back into the game by the heart and heroics of his all-girl team. Jon Lovitz adds a scene-stealing cameo as the sarcastic scout who recruits Dottie Hinson (Geena Davis), the baseball dolly with a Babe Ruth swing. Teammates Madonna, Lori Petty and Rosie O'Donnell round out the roster, taking the team to the World Series. Based on the true story of the pioneering women who blazed the trail, on the fields and off, for generations of athletes.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include Commentary with Penny Marshall, Lori Petty, Megan Cavanagh, and Tracy Reiner; deleted scenes with video introductions by Penny Marshall; Nine Memorable Innings Pre-Game; and "This Used to Be My Playground" music video.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $19.99.
