Updated: Monday, September 2 2013, 07:44 PM EDT

Judges at the Maryland State Fair awarded ribbons on Sunday. One of them went to Ruth Hartman, whose sheep, raised at her farm in Pennsylvania, are annual winners.

Ruth has a unique background. She is a Hall-of-Famer in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, the inspiration behind the Tom Hanks movie "A League of Their Own." Ruth played for two seasons, recruited right out of college by the then-head of the Chicago Cubs, before going back to college and graduating.

Watch the video above for her perspective on the popular feature film! Ruth is now considered one of the top sheep breeders in the country.
