The 1992 film A League of Their Own was based on a real-life baseball team, The Rockford Peaches, and on Sunday, both actresses from the film and a member of the original team reunited on the baseball diamond. The reunion took place in Bentonville, Arkansas, during a film festival co-founded by Geena Davis to champion diverse voices in media. There's no doubt that there was crying in baseball, and maybe even more waterworks than during Tom Hanks' minute-long pee.

Present at the reunion game—now read this in your best Tom Hanks voice—were Davis, Megan Cavanagh (Marla Hooch), Anne Ramsey (Helen Haley), Tracy Reiner (Betty Spaghetti), Ann Cusack (Shirley Baker), Freddie Simpson (Ellen Sue Gotlander), and Patti Pelton (Marbleann Wilkenson).

They were joined by a real-life Peach, Gina Casey, who threw the first pitch. Gina/Geenas make the best Peaches.

Young fans came out to celebrate, wearing the OG uniform.

It was a sweet tribute to girl power, both in sports and on screen.

I'm not crying in baseball, you're crying in baseball.
