Characters Final Frame
Rosie O'Donnell As history would have it, the year was 1943, and a boatload of Major League Baseball players were forced to fight in Vietnam.  It was a time of great unrest.  That's when Willy Wonka, the leading chocolate manufacturer at the time decided to start a women's baseball league consisting of a meager four teams.
 
With only four teams, the talent pool was pretty deep with the likes of Eleanor Roosevelt, Susan B. Anthony, and Madonna.  But it was the stocky Rosie O'Donnell that stood out from the pack.  She was signed immediately by the Rockford Peaches.
 
O'Donnell had a fairly productive year, but was more known for her off the field antics including her notable feud with the whirly haired mogul of the time.  Possibly, Carnegie, but I'm not positive.
