Inspired by the very real All-American Girl’s Professional Baseball League, the film caught our hearts just like a pop fly. So, it is only natural that we’d want to show off our athlete status in some top-tier 1940-1950s fashion! (Or at least what the executives of the baseball leagues thought would be great during the events of World War II.) The only real question is which character you want to become. Show off your leadership skills or struggle through some sisterly drama in a couple’s costume. Either way, get your singing voices ready, because...batter’s up! Hear that call. It’s time to play ball with a League of Their Own costume!

So, it follows that America’s Favorite Pastime is an obvious entry for America’s Favorite Halloween Costume, too! Between the white and black stripes of the umpire calling the shots to the world-famous home runs and epic pitches of the players themselves, there's no end to the baseball fun.

Jimmy Dugan Costume
Do you have a bit of a surly personality? Do you know, deep down, that there isn't any crying in baseball? But will you slowly warm up to the needs of those around you? Will you encourage them all to higher levels of success than even you were destined to have? That’s the kind of character that can really lead us all to victory! If that’s the case, the life of a baseball coach might be for you! But, before you commit to that, try dressing up as the iconic character portrayed by Tom Hanks with a Jimmy Dugan costume!
Dottie Hinson Costume
Deep down, do you know that you’re the star of the show? Obviously, you've got the humility to not rub that in other people's faces. But you're going to be the one people flock to the stadium to see. You’ve got the charisma to lead your team when your coach is passed out in the dugout—and the skill to keep the audience entertained. And, at the end of the season, you’re still going to do the right thing to make everyone smile. If this is you, it’s time to dazzle the crowd in a Dottie Hinson costume.
Kit Keller Costume
When you get together with the family, are you frequently reminded that you're the younger sibling? Do you find that the spotlight is always on someone else, even though you've got the same talent? Even if you want to be on the same team as your kin, it can be near impossible to hear anyone shout your name if they’re too busy calling out for your older sister! It might be tough at first, but switching teams can give you the chance to pitch a perfect game. There’s no better way to do that than by becoming Kit Keller, the spitfire of the Belles.
Between all the players running around on the field, catching pop flies, knocking balls out of the field, and trying to manage the ultimate in stellar stunts, you can get lost in the crowd. There’s one way to make sure that everyone is paying attention to you during the game, though. The best part is that you get to call the shots, too! Become the official on the field when you dress up as the Umpire! You’ll want to practice all of your gestures. “Safe!” and “Strike!” are obvious favorites but don’t forget the “You’re outta here!” while arguing with the players!
A League of Their Own Group Costumes
Jimmy says that there isn’t any crying in baseball. But you know what you really can’t have in baseball? Well, you certainly won’t have much of a game if you’re looking at a team of one person! This is the kind of glorious pastime that demands a high-energy group. Fortunately, we have several costume options to fill out the entire team. So, gather up your friends and family and put together the best group photo that folks have ever seen. When you select a combination of our Made By Us costumes, you can bring the whole film to life and tell your own chapter! Just make sure that you practice your baseball anthem while you're getting ready. We're confident that'll make everyone ready to embrace the fun of the baseball and Halloween season!
A League of Their Own Costumes for Kids
Just because all of the characters in A League of Their Own were adults doesn't mean that it is a game just for the grown-ups. (Heck, they kept calling Kit a kid the whole time, and Stilwell was there, too.) Help your tykes get ready for the season when you dress them up in kid-sized A League of Their Own costumes. Toddlers will be in the perfect getup for their first shot at T-Ball, while the older kids will make the ideal Kit. Of course, you can mix it up a bit and have a whole team of Jimmy Dugans all running on the field while Dottie calls the shots, too! (Then again, that's not too far from the truth anyway!)
A League of Their Own Family Costumes
Obviously, the best team out there is the family who plays together! When Dottie and Kit are seeing eye to eye, they are a force that can't be beaten. So, it follows that a family photo of you and yours is sure to be a home run! Pose as though you’re getting ready for the signature shot for the Halloween Family Hall of Fame or arrange an action pose as you call your home run hit. We only hope that your infant Jimmy Dugan remembers that there isn't any crying during baseball photoshoots! Of course, when you're dressed to succeed in a Family League of Their Own group costume, it’s always a winner.
A League of Their Own Accessories
Once you’ve geared up in your choice of baseball attire, you’re just about ready for the game. Of course, there are a few more steps to take before you’re ready to hit the field. The actresses of A League of Their Own needed to practice their game, so you should, too! Fortunately, we’ve got a few great accessories to help tie your League look together! Find your favorite and you’ll have a complete ensemble before the announcers even call you up to the plate. Of course, you could go wild with creativity, too. Mix and match with other costume categories to create the sequel that we didn’t know we needed! What happens when Wonder Woman is drafted to the Rockford Peaches? Well, add a tiara to your costume and find out! Try your hand at some of our grayscale body paint and a gray wig, and you're not only living out the All-American Girl's Professional Baseball League, but you'll look like you stepped right out of a black and white photograph from the Hall of Fame!
Doing the splits while catching balls and commanding the respect of everyone wearing one of the Rockford Peaches uniforms isn’t enough. To truly master all the might of Dottie Hinson, you also need to be sporting a fiery head of hair to match her passion. Fortunately, you don’t need to worry about keeping your hairdo styled while at the away games. You can use a Dottie Hinson Wig so you can focus on the game!
What does it take to be the ultimate pitcher on two different teams? Well, first, you need to have a serious pitching arm. Second, a bit of a fire in your belly is always helpful. And third? Well, a peppy hairstyle can’t ever hurt! Kit Keller has a way of looking like she's always got her head in the game, and that's why her hair is always just a bit wild. That sounds like the perfect situation for a Kit Keller Wig...and a slide into Home Plate!
A League of Their Own Baseball Cap
What’s the one thing you’re sure to see in every scene of A League of Their Own? Well, the characters grab the bill of their cap, spin it around, and prepare for an epic pitch. Practice those with your very own, officially licensed baseball cap, and you've got a winning look!
A League of Their Own Baseball Bat
Every costume needs a prop to really sell the photo opportunities. Sure, you’re going to be convincing when you dress up in a Rockford Peach uniform or pose like you’re ready to catch the ball. But nothing says baseball quite like a bat. Grab your bat and keep an eye on your target because there’s no Halloween photo quite like an athlete holding a baseball bat of their own!
A League of Their Own FAQ
Who are the A League of Their Own characters?
There are a ton of interesting characters in A League of Their Own. Dottie Hinson, Kit Keller, and Jimmy Dougan are the main stars, played by Geena Davis, Lori Petty, and Tom Hanks, respectively. Jimmy is an ex-baseball star that was forced into becoming a coach for the Rockford Peaches when he had no other options. Kit was a pretty decent pitcher in their home games and really wanted to win a shot at joining the league. She was rather outshined by her sister, Dottie, though. Let’s just say some sisterly rivalry was bound to happen!
There are several other beloved characters that you can become, too. Shine as #5 on the team, “All the Way” Mae Mordabito, a flirty and fun baseball star portrayed by Madonna, herself! Doris Murphy played #22 on Third Base and took no prisoners with Rosie O’Donnell giving her voice. Betty “Spaghetti” Horn, Marla Hooch, and Evelyn Gardner were all pretty prominent players (not to mention Evelyn’s troublesome kiddo, Stilwell). Each of the actresses trained to perform all of their own baseball stunts. (Except for sliding into the splits to catch a ball...but who can blame Geena for not trying that?!)
What is the All-American Girl's Professional Baseball League?
The AAGPBL was the start of the Women’s Professional League that the United States now knows. It was founded by Phillip Wrigley in 1943 and continued through 1954. Over 600 women played in the 10 different teams throughout the Midwest. The Rockford Peaches were a real team that won four championships throughout the league’s lifetime. It began largely to maintain baseball's presence in the country when male players were drafted for World War II. Players were scouted from softball games, so the league play began as a hybrid between baseball and softball. They later developed into the traditional game, earning a place in the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1988!
