It’s been nearly three decades since Dot, Kit, and the Rockford Peaches hit it out of the park in Penny Marshall’s unforgettable classic A League of Their Own, which premiered in theaters in 1992. And now it’s time to play ball again with the reimagined series adaptation premiering on Prime Video.

Set in 1943, Prime Video’s A League of Their Own is co-created and executive produced by Abbi Jacobson, who also stars as Carson, a woman who leaves her life in Idaho behind to try out for the Peaches, a new professional women’s baseball league.

The new show also stars Chanté Adams (Max), D’Arcy Carden (Greta), Nick Offerman (the Peaches’ manager, Dove), and an all-new team and cast, with an appearance from Rosie O’Donnell, who played Doris in the original, in a new role.

Here’s how you can stream the new A League of Their Own online, and how you can rewatch Marshall’s original hit at home.

Streaming isn’t the only way to watch the original A League of Their Own movie. You can own A League of Their Own on DVD and Blu-ray, so you can watch the iconic film whenever you want without needing a WiFi connection.

Fans can currently get the 25th anniversary edition, which also comes with a digital copy of the film. The Blu-ray edition also features deleted scenes from the original movie, commentary from Penny Marshall and the cast, plus the music video for Madonna’s “This Used To Be My Playground,” and, of course, lets you revisit iconic quotes like the one Hanks’ character Jimmy Dugan delivers: “There’s no crying in baseball.”

Jacobson has said that she wants the new A League of Their Own remake to empower young girls to “dismantle the typical gender boundaries of sport.” Prime Video and Baseball for All, a girls’ baseball nonprofit organization, recently teamed up with Jacobson on an open letter to young female athletes, which reads in part:

THIS LETTER WRITTEN HERE BY US, THE NEW GENERATION OF FEMALE BASEBALL PLAYERS, IS TO PROMISE YOU THAT WE ARE GOING TO CHANGE HISTORY. WE WILL DO OUR BEST TO HONOR THE PREVIOUS GENERATIONS OF INCREDIBLE PLAYERS AND ELEVATE THE NAME OF THE WOMEN’S LEAGUE.

EVERY SINGLE BALL THAT WE CATCH, JUMP OR BAT OUTSIDE THE STADIUM WILL BE ANOTHER LINE THAT WE ADD TO THE STORY OF THIS SPORT THAT WE HAVE IN OUR HEART AND SOUL.

WE ARE THE NEW GIRLS, WE ARE THE NEW HOPE, WE ARE THE FUTURE OF THIS SPORT. THE SWEAT IN OUR DIRTY JERSEYS IS PROOF OF THE EFFORT WE PUT INTO EVERY GAME.

BASEBALL FOR ALL.

THE GIRLS
