Twenty-five teammates from the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League came together to celebrate the league's 75th anniversary at a reunion in Kansas City, Missouri.

When they were younger, these seniors played professional baseball during World War II, and kept the spirit of America's favorite pastime alive. Although they've slowed down since their time on the diamond, their memories of playing ball together are still vivid in their minds.

The 1992 film "A League of Their Own" was based on their inspiring story.

Watch the video above to see the reunion of some of America's finest female baseball players.
