During WWII when all the men are fighting the war, most of the jobs that were left vacant because of their absence were filled by women. The owners of the baseball teams, not wanting baseball to be dormant indefinitely, decide to form teams with women. Scounts are sent all over the country to find players when one of the scouts passes through Oregon and finds a woman named Dottie Hinson, who is incredible. She is not interested in going until the scout offers to also take her kid sister. Jimmy Dugan, a former MLB player, who's now a drunk is the team manager. Do these women have what it takes to be taken seriously in competitive baseball?
