Make your way to League Stadium in Huntingburg, Indiana for a neat but giant leftover prop that’s still in use today!

Remember that old Tom Hanks, Gena Davis, and Madonna movie about baseball, A League of their Own? Well, that, my friend, was shot right here in this Dubois County town.

A League of Their Own at League Stadium: Huntingburg, Indiana

Huntingburg, Indiana has had film crews roaming around the town more than once and I’ll tell you why–it’s so dang cute and perfectly suited to period films!

League Stadium, built in 1894, underwent quite the process to fit the era of A League of Their Own.The field and grandstands were expanded and improved.

But today? This Indiana town stadium is fitted with period light fixtures, bleachers, and even advertising.

Look out across the well-kept field and you can’t miss the old fashioned Coca Cola and Levi’s ads–in colors that match the oranges and blues of the stadium, the Rockford Peaches colors!

As Indiana attractions go, I thought this was the neatest thing. It’s not every day that you can walk onto the set of a movie!

Yeah, it’s awesome. But more than that–a semi-professional baseball team, the DC Bombers, actually use League Stadium.

So not only does it look good, but it gets its fair share of use! Would it not be really fun to catch a game? You’ve got to wonder what visitors think when they see the old-fashioned stadium!
