1991: Madonna's Indiana Press Conference




It's 20 years ago this month since filming started on "A League Of Their Own", the baseball movie directed by Penny Marshall, which featured Madonna starring alongside Tom Hanks & Geena Davis. The movie was a huge box office hit in the Summer of 1992 and also gave Madonna another US number one single with the theme song "This Used To Be My Playground".

Monday September 9th 1991 saw the entire cast & Penny Marshall host a press conference in the small town of Evansville, Indiana where most of the movie was shot. There were no Hydrangeas at this one, but Madonna was by far the star attraction as this fantastic Entertainment Tonight TV report demonstrates!
