Baseball Girls: Forget everything you think you know about baseball. From the early days of the Bloomer Girls to today's Colorado Silver Bullets, Baseball Girls features something new and different about women who love the sport. You'll see seven-year-olds learning the rules and skills of the game, and fifty-year-olds hitting home runs. This zany and affectionate feature documentary uses animation, archival stills, and live-action footage to detail the history of women's participation in the largely male-dominated world of baseball and softball (48 min. 2 sec.). Shooting Stars: This dramatization celebrates the Edmonton Grads women's basketball team, which was formed in 1915 and disbanded in 1940. During that time the team was Canadian Champion (1922-1940), North American Champion (1923-1940), and World Champion (1924-1940). Their phenomenal record of 502 wins and 20 losses remains unrivalled by any team in any sport (49 min. 24 sec.). (This set is available at a reduced price only until August 31, 1997 after which the titles may be purchased individually.)
