Indiana couple weds at ‘A League of Their Own’ stadium

HUNTINGBURG, Ind. (AP) — Two baseball fans have tied the knot at a southern Indiana baseball stadium where one of the best-known scenes of the movie “A League of Their Own” was filmed.

Kristopher Weisheit and Brittany Birk took their vows Saturday at home plate at League Stadium in Huntingburg, while their groomsmen and bridesmaids lined up, respectively, along the first and third baselines.

The (Jasper) Herald reports that the baseball enthusiasts’ wedding was the first ever held at League Stadium. Maintenance foreman Dale Payne says he’s “surprised that nobody had asked before then.”

The stadium is featured in the 1992 movie about a women’s baseball league during World War II that starred Tom Hanks and Madonna. In one scene, Hanks’ team manager character tells one of his players: “There’s no crying in baseball.”
