10 Gayest Scenes in the ‘A League of Their Own’ Series

Author: Becca Damante

Earlier this summer, Abbi Jacobson and Will Graham gave queer women everything we ever wanted with the television adaptation of A League of Their Own. In eight spectacular episodes, we laughed, we cried, and we shipped characters as they came out, kissed, dated, and played baseball.

Borrowing its premise and name from the beloved Penny Marshall film that starred Geena Davis, Lori Petty, Rosie O’Donnell, and Madonna as baseball players in the all-women’s league that sprouted up while men were away in World War II, the very queer series goes where viewers wish the movie could have gone. The show, created by Broad City’s Jacobson and Graham, features several queer characters, including a Black transgender character who shows up partway into the series. In another departure from the movie, the series tells parallel stories about the white women baseball players who’ve won coveted slots in the women’s league on teams like the Rockford Peaches while Chanté Adams’s ringer of a pitcher, Max Chapman, is shut out and forced navigates landing a spot playing with the Black male league. The series also delves into the lives of Latinx players who were in the league but whose stories were not amplified. 

Here are 10 of the gayest moments from this television masterpiece. Also, spoilers are ahead.
