A popular television show recently utilized a Bucks County baseball field to record episodes of their historical and beloved story. Tom Chang wrote about the field and the show for Bleeding Cool.
The popular Amazon Prime show A League of Our Own, starring Abbi Jacobson and filmed in Pittsburgh, was busy finding a baseball stadium in the area that fit the era proved to be a challenge.
The closest two stadiums were in Quakertown and Erie, both more than five hours away from the filming home base. This created some issues for the crew and forced them to make major adjustments to the filming schedule.
Those were not stadiums “we could go to tomorrow and shoot,” said Victoria Paul, a production designer on the show. “They were both far enough away that they just presented a host of logistic challenges like, ‘What do we do?’ Because don’t forget, it’s a series.”
That meant that with every director having baseball scenes in their episode. It had to be decided if the filming would move for the stadium scenes for four days every 12 or whether a different schedule should be made.
“It was a logistical challenge to figure out how to make that work,” said Paul.
