This along with Cool Runnings and Bird On A Wire is scores by Zimmer I would love to be released.

I am not a Zimmer fan but I adore this score.

Zimmer compsed a score that sounds both like a timeless film score, but also has moments of periodic peices to color the emotion.

I actually think this was his best period, and this, probably his best score.

There was a time, for a little while, in the early 90s when it was okay to have gentle, nostalgic music in family films. James Newton Howard's My Girl is probably the closest I can think of to League of Their Own, probably because I rewatched it recently after not seeing it since the VHS days. The movie itself moves at an uncomfortably slow pace (times a-changed) but I appreciated how it allowed the music to breathe. And it was a really effective and melodic score... and honestly captured the awkward vibe of the film quite well.

David Newman's The Sandlot is another that allowed a gentler approach. No way a sports film, let alone two, would move slow enough to inject these kinds of scores today. Products of their time for sure.

The 4K Blu-ray is getting rave reviews, for both picture and sound, and makes me want an expansion all the more.
