Their Own League | Saturday Night Live

Back in 1992 when we were still the artists formerly known as Sportsrobe, we had the opportunity to work with Parkway Productions on this little movie about two sisters joining the first female professional baseball league during WWII.

If you haven’t seen it yet, it was called A League of Their Own. We provided the majority of sports wardrobe and props, including the emblematic female baseball uniforms.

In 2012 A League of Their Own was selected for preservation by the National Film Registry and declared to be a culturally and historically significant film.

Then the parodies started rolling in. First, Funny or Die called in 2013 to rent the same uniforms used in the original movie. Naturally, we were more than happy to oblige.

Now in 2015, we worked with assistant costume designer Remy Pearce to pull out the original uniforms and other sports wardrobe for the Saturday Night Live skit, Their Own League. See our work in the video below.
