A Peach of a Movie which Delivers a Full Count

As the boys went off to to fight in the second World War, "Harvey Candy Bar" owner "Walter Harvey" (Garry Marshall) decides to create an all-women baseball league.

Two players recruited are two farm girls, sisters from Iowa who are in the middle of a sibling rivalry.
