A League of Their Own Trivia at The Shannon in Hoboken Wednesday August 28 at 8pm
“There’s no crying in baseball” – At least according to the character Jimmy Dugan in the movie “A League of their Own” or your typical NY Mets fan. To understand the culture shock to some of woman playing professional baseball during World War II when MLB suspended their league for several years while young men went off to war here is a quote that pretty much sums up the cultural attitudes of many during that time…..
“Careers and higher education are leading to the masculinization of women, with enormously dangerous consequences to the home, the children, and our country. When our boys come home from war, what kind of girls will they be coming home to? And now the most disgusting example of this sexual confusion: Mr. Walter Harvey of Harvey bars is presenting us with women’s baseball. Right here in Chicago, young girls plucked from their families are gathered at Harvey Field, to see which one of them can be the most masculine. Mr. Harvey, like your candy bars, you’re completely… nuts.”
Well, if you and your friends have seen this movie about women’s baseball and think you know your stuff Trivia AD is hosting another one of their trivia night’s tomorrow night at The Shannon Wednesday August 28th at 8pm. The Shannon is located at 106 1st Street in Hoboken. Reservations can be made by emailing email@example.com.
