Penny Marshall, who brought the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League to the silver screen while producing "A League of Their Own" in 1992, has died. She was 75.

Marshall, one of the top-grossing female directors in Hollywood, died in her Hollywood Hills, California, home on Monday because of complications from diabetes, her publicist said.

"A League of Their Own" chronicled the Rockford Peaches and the launch of the AAGPBL during World War II. The cast included Geena Davis, Tom Hanks, Madonna, Lori Petty and Rosie O'Donnell, and the film grossed $107.5 million domestically.

Hanks' reprimand from the movie -- "There's no crying in baseball!'' -- remains quoted on baseball diamonds everywhere.

Marshall, who made frequent courtside appearances at Lakers and Clippers games in Los Angeles over the years, starred in the ABC television hit "Laverne & Shirley" and, as a filmmaker, became the first woman to direct a film that grossed more than $100 million with "Big," which also starred Hanks.
