Basically:

-an Effa Manley biopic will be directed by Penny Marshall (A League of Their Own, Big)
-Effa Manley (1897-1981) is the first woman inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
-She was referenced in A League of Their Own as the African-American woman who beautifully throws back a stray ball
-Filming will start next year
