Although most recognized for portraying Marla "What a Hitter" Hooch in 1992's hit movie "A League of Their Own," Chicago, Ill. native Megan Cavanagh began her career as a live performer. Cavanagh was one of the original members of professional theater troupe New Age Vaudeville. The group was an Actor's Equity Theater troupe and put on plays in Chicago and in Fish Creek, Wis. Cavanagh's performances were always well-received, and her roles in An Evening with Elmore & Gwendolyn Putts -The Neighbors Next Door and the TV Dinner Hour have become cult favorites. "A League of Their Own" was Cavanagh's first major motion picture, and her character, the homely, shy, but incredibly talented second-base player was one of the most memorable roles in the film, owing to Cavanagh's impeccable command of physical comedy. The movie's success led to large parts in other big-budget pictures including such satires as "Robin Hood: Men In Tights" and "Dracula: Dead and Loving It." SInce the 1990s, Cavanagh has guested on various television programs such as "Boston Public," "Just Shoot Me," and the lesbian comedy "Exes and Oh's," which aired on the LOGO network from 2006 to 2009. Cavanagh has also lent her voice to a number of animated productions including "The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius."
