One of the original stars of 1992's "A League of Their Own" will be featured in the forthcoming Amazon Studios series adaptation.
Entertainment Weekly on Thursday revealed the first shot of Rosie O'Donnell as Vi, a bar owner who has a recurring role in the series.
Vi is described as a "warm, gregarious" fan of the Rockford Peaches, the all-female team that takes up the national pastime when male players leave to fight in World War II, according to the outlet.
O'Donnell is shown wearing a grey, three-piece, pin-striped business suit in the photo.

O'Donnell played outspoken third base player Doris Murphy in the 1992 Penny Marshall original, which also starred Oscar winners Geena Davis and Tom Hanks, along with Lori Petty and Madonna.
The new adaptation stars "Broad City" creator and star Abbi Jacobson, D'Arcy Carden, Kate Berlant and Chanté Adams.
It promises to take "a deeper look at race and sexuality, following the journey of a whole new ensemble of characters as they carve their own paths towards the field, both in the league and outside of it."
The series debuts Aug. 12 on Amazon Prime.
