Geena Davis spills 'League of Their Own' secrets on 25th anniversary

A League of Their Own has earned its place as one of America’s best sports comedies, selected for preservation in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress in 2012.

As the film celebrates its 25th anniversary on July 1 (with a new special edition Blu-ray out now), Davis recounts her memories from the League set.

Madonna was a question mark: Davis admits she wasn’t sure what it would be like to work with Madonna, then in her prime.

'She was Madonna. We wondered if we were going to be able to talk to her. Was she going to have an entourage? Were they going to put up walls around her where she stands?' Davis recalls.

Ultimately, Madonna was a team player who trained hard and insisted on sliding head-first into bases. 'That was painful. But she was so game. She was a trooper,' says Davis.
