20th Anniversary of A League of Their Own

July 27, 2012

Oscar-winning actor Geena Davis threw the first pitch at Friday’s Salt Lake Bees game against the Sacramento River Cats. Davis was in town to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the film, “A League of Their Own,” which she stars in. Following the game, fans could watch a free screening of the movie while sitting on the outfield grass. The Bees’ celebrity guest also participated in batting practice with the team, led the crowd in a round of “Take Me Out To the Ball Game” and other activities throughout the game.
