Join us as we commemorate the 25th anniversary of the movie, "A League of Their Own," with a 1940s-themed cocktail event.

Come in your best 1940s attire (optional - but encouraged!) and walk the red carpet to enter the celebration located at the Huntingburg Event Center. Take a step back in time and pay tribute to this hit motion picture that was partially filmed in Huntingburg, Indiana.

The price per ticket is $40. (In order to ensure tickets, purchase in advance! While there is still plenty available as of right now, seating capacity is limited with a set number of spaces.)

  • When: Friday, June 16, 2017
  • Time: 7pm - 10pm
  • Where: Huntingburg Event Center 200 E. 14th St. Huntingburg, IN 47542

Event highlights:

  • Special appearance by actress, Bitty Schram, who played "Evelyn Gardner," the sobbing right-fielder who was reminded by Tom Hanks that "THERE'S NO CRYING IN BASEBALL!" 
  • Special appearance by Justin Scheller, "Stilwell Gardner" in the movie, Evelyn's son that taunted all the Peaches in the film. 
  • Special appearance by Ryan Olsen,  “Dollbody Kid” in the movie, who propositioned Dottie Hinson (Geena Davis) to “slip in the back seat and make a man out of me."
  • Premiere showing of a "9-inning" documentary that commemorates the City of Huntingburg, League Stadium and the making of the movie!
  • Hors d'oeurves, Cash Bar and 1940s music!
