Tracy Reiner at the Hollywood Celebrities Show

A League of Their Own is one of my all-time favorite movies.  The fictional story of the real-life All-American Girls Professional Baseball League starred  Tom Hanks, Geena Davis, Madonna, Rosie O'Donnell and many others.  It was directed by Penny Marshall.
Tracy Reiner starred as Betty "Spaghetti" Horn (#7, left field/relief pitcher) for the Rockford Peaches.  Tracy is Penny's daughter and Rob Reiner's adopted daughter.  Tracy has had a lengthy career, appearing in movies such as Pretty Woman, Beaches, Apollo 13 and many others.
I met Tracy at a Hollywood Celebrities Show a few years ago.  There was a mini-reunion of A League of Their Own..  It was cool to see several of the ladies together again.  They all had such fond memories of that movie.
Tracy enjoyed working under her mother's direction, as well as working with so many other talented actors.  She enjoyed the baseball scenes, too, but did admit they were hard work.
As a side note, Tracy's acting career started during her teenage years.  Tracy appeared on tv's Laverne & Shirley three times in three different roles.
