A Night at the Ballpark: Catch A League of Their Own with the Bellingham Bells and Pickford Film Center

Film, For the Family, Baseball

Take your family and friends out to the ballgame July 14th for a full night of fun as the Bellingham Bells battle the Wenatchee AppleSox, followed by a showing of A League of Their Own right on the field. The movie follows two sisters (Geena Davis and Lori Petty) who leave their family’s farm in Oregon to bat for the big leagues. Don’t miss Tom Hanks, Madonna, Rosie O’Donnell, and a cast of quirky and intelligent women navigate the patriarchy and pleasures of playing for the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. The movie is free to the public, and will begin after it gets dark. We will be sitting on the field, so bring pillows, blankets and an extra layer in case it gets chilly. The Bells concessions will be open, including pretzels, hot dogs, and other summer treats. There will also be one-of-a-kind event posters, commissioned by Bellingham artist Karen Blanquart, available per donation to commemorate the event. The Bellingham Bells play hard throughout the month of July, so be sure to check out their schedule for more ball games.
