Penny Marshall’s ongoing love affair with ‘The Show’

Actress, director and producer Penny Marshall, who gave us the wonderful “A League of Their Own” is said to be developing two more baseball-themed films.

Marshall will direct and produce a feature and a documentary about the game, reports Radar Online.

Producer Byron Motley reveals to Radar that the feature film is about the Newark Eagles co-owner Effa Manley.

In 2006, Manley was the first woman inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

The other project will feature the Negro leagues in documentary format and is to include interviews with Colin Powell, former Dodger Don Newcombe, and former Giant Monty Irving.
