The article examines the story of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League through three points in time – the time of the league’s inception in the 1940s; 1992, when the film A League of Their Own explored this forgotten history of women’s baseball; and 2022, the year in which Amazon launched a series with the same title.

Through the story of A League of Their Own, this article traces some of the transformations that the images and positions of women underwent on and off screen in the 80-year timeframe.
