This film is about a bunch of girls playing baseball. If you're not turned away from that statement alone, then this movie is great and you should add it to your queue.
If you are turned away, you should relax a little. This movie is about what Major League Baseball was like during World War II. During that time, a majority of the men who would have been able to actually play in the league were across seas or in the military somewhere. Instead of shutting down the league altogether, it was decided that women should play on all the males' behalves.
The film stars Tom Hanks as the drunken coach (who was unable to fight in the war), Geena Davis, Rosie O'Donnel, and... Madonna. But seriously this is a great movie, even if Madonna is in it.
This was one of those movies that used to always play on cable TV every weekend, and you'd turn it on and watch it because, hey, Tom Hanks is awesome. I'm a big baseball fan myself, so I really like watching any movie involving the sport. Weirdly enough, this really does take a good approach to actually filming the sport, and if you're still trying to find a reason you should watch, that should be it.
It's a classic, and well worth streaming on Netflix. It's one of the few truly watchable classics available for streaming on Netflix Watch Instant.
