Davis starred as Dorothy “Dottie” Hinson alongside Tom Hanks, Madonna, Rosie O’Donnell and Lori Petty in the 1992 film, which followed a female professional baseball league during World War II.

“I have just as many girls and young women tell me they play sports specifically because of that movie, as when it came out originally,” Davis told Us. “And it’s not just they want to play baseball, you know? [Soccer player] Abby Wambach told me that she plays soccer because of that movie. So it’s fun to be in a movie like that.”
