Madonna’s character, Mae, was inspired by All-American Girls Professional Baseball League player Faye Dancer, also known as “All The Way Faye”. According to the Washington Post, Dancer was an excellent player, a prankster who never let her dates rest, and she had a signature slide that Mae does painfully in “A League of Their Own” with a smile for the crowd. “I always had fun, pulling up my skirt for the fans, doing splits and handstands when the games died down,” Dancer said in 1992, according to The Post. The former baseball player died on May 22, 2002.

Tom Hanks told Entertainment Tonight in 1992 that “nobody knew what to expect from the world’s most recognizable and popular cultural icon” when he was asked to work with Madonna. “She had a different personality and it’s interesting to get used to it after a while,” he said.

By that, Hanks meant that the singer was someone “who’s seen a lot” and “been through a lot.” Some would say that he is similar to Mae’s characterization. “All The Way” Mae knows how attractive she is and she uses it to her advantage. But despite everything, she still has feelings and is not as tough as she seems. “I ended up loving it. I thought she was cute. I thought she was cool,” Hanks shared.
