Penny Marshall Does Baseball Films

Penny Marshall (“A League of Their Own”) will helm and produce two new baseball films – a feature and a documentary reports Radar Online.

Producer Byron Motley reveals that he penned the feature film which is about Newark Eagles co-owner Effa Manley. In 2006, Manley was the first woman inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

A documentary about the Negro leagues will be the second film and is slated to include interviews with Colin Powell, former Dodger Don Newcombe, and former Giant Monty Irving.
