The film I am analyzing, A League of Their Own, would be categorized as a narrative film about the growth of women’s baseball teams during World War II. It follows the dramatized story of Dottie Hinson’s time in her baseball league and their struggles to make women’s baseball be taken seriously; however, the film focuses more on Dottie’s personal goals and relationships. With the added personal challenge of Dottie’s increasing rivalry with her sibling, Kit, as well as the uncaring attitude of their manager, Jimmy Dugan, Dottie’s tale is filled with tension and emotion that is shaped to draw the audience in. To showcase the drama of the film and to help the audience become attached to the stories of the characters, the movie uses flashbacks, comedy, and interpersonal drama to manufacture the story of our main character, Dottie, more interesting and engaging to the audience. As is easily evident simply by the summary of the movie, A League of Their Own is a nonfiction, narrative film made for entertainment and drama, and uses the time period as the circumstances of the story relevant to the audience.

Women’s Baseball during World War II Women and baseball are two categories that were never put together. Up until the 1940’s, the cliche of American women playing sports was challenged. Due to World War II, all men were off fighting for the Allied Forces, including many sports stars. Not wanting to focus on the negative aspects of the war, women turned to baseball. They played not only as an escape from the gloomy war, but women also played to prove that they had an impact on America.
At the point of Alberta’s death, Troy was at a point of desperation and needed someone to act as mother to his child, luckily for him Rose obliged but she told him “you are a motherless man” (2.3.28-29). Knowing Troy and his baseball analogies he could have come up with something like “You came in for relief already why don’t you just close the deal and get back with me?” As the relief and closer aspects of the analogy represent relief and closer pitchers in baseball.

Ever since listening to that quote, I have committed my time to helping women and girls play baseball.
All you do is bat and ground the ball and through it to a person. You do have to run a lot. But compared to the rest of the rest of the sports baseball is the most laid back.
