Ghislaine Maxwell is currently serving a 20-year sentence for operating as a procurer for perhaps the most infamous sex trafficker in recent American history, but that doesn’t mean she can’t enjoy a good game of rounders in a low-security facility just like the next lady.
Inmates are referring to Maxwell as “Dottie” after Geena Davis’ role in the 1992 movie “A League of Their Own,” which is a highly romanticized portrayal of women’s professional baseball during World War II. This is according to an article from the U.K. Daily Mirror that was published on Friday.
“Ghislaine is very popular among the girls. She is very sociable,” according to a source within the Federal Correctional Institution Tallahassee jail in Florida, who spoke to the Mirror.
“Straight away, she began mixing with others taking part in all manner of activities. She almost won musical chairs one day, getting down to the last two.”
“But it’s her love of softball she seems to most enjoy. Whenever there is a game, Ghislaine want to play,” the source continued. “When she took to the field, they called her ‘Dottie.’ It stuck.”
While Dorothy “Dottie” Hinson, played by Davis, was an all-American girl waiting for her spouse to come home from the war in the 1992 film, a scout caught her eye as she played for her neighborhood dairy. Despite being one of the league’s top players, she leaves the team when her husband gets back from the battlefield.
As it turns out, her team loses in the final game of the women’s World Series, but that’s primarily just a plot device to give her younger sister, who was playing for the other team, a chance to shine. This benign family entertainment has been seen a gazillion times before, and Tom Hanks’ surprisingly good portrayal as a bitter, drunken, washed-up retired major leaguer is the only thing keeping it from falling into the same category as “The Mighty Ducks” franchise.
You won’t be surprised to learn that the movie doesn’t feature any socialites who were convicted of sexual offenses, nor does it depict sex trafficking or the mistreatment of young girls.
Nevertheless, the Mirror reports that Maxwell “is now a key player in her B South unit’s softball team, beating bitter rivals A South unit and another wing,”. Assuming no Hollywood studio has optioned this story.
On the other hand, the 60-year-old Maxwell has started exercising in addition to playing baseball and musical chairs on the prison grounds.
“Dressed in a standard-issue grey T-shirt, matching sweat shorts and trainers, the convicted teen sex trafficker pounds out the miles, locked up and locked alone in her thoughts,” the Mirror said on Thursday.
“Only the presence of uniformed warders and roll upon roll of razor-sharp barbered wire provides a reminder that the women dressed in similar attire are actual prisoners.”

The Mirror was informed by a source that “Ghislaine is incredibly fit,”
“She runs almost every day, and when not jogging on the track, she will walk with one of her friends.”
More on this story via The Western Journal:
“For her age, she is incredibly active and does a 40-minute session, completing lap after lap without stopping before she needs to be back inside,” the source added. “She is happy to be allowed out in the open once again, where she has at least some semblance of freedom.”
She also works in the law library at the prison, according to the article.
In July, the New York Post reported that she’d been moved to the cushy prison in Florida, where “inmates enjoy movies, a running track and even yoga in the yard.” CONTINUE READING…
