Born in New York City, Schram attended the University of Maryland and has worked steadily in film ever since. She is best known for her film debut role as “Evelyn Gardner,” the sobbing right-fielder who was reminded by Tom Hanks that there is “No crying in baseball!,” in Penny Marshall’s box office hit, “A League of Their Own.” Schram followed up that success with numerous critical-acclaimed films, including “Cleopatra’s Second Husband,” with Paul Hipp; “Kissing A Fool,” with David Schwimmer and Jason Lee; “One Fine Day,” with Michelle Pfeiffer and George Clooney; “Marvin’s Room,” with Meryl Streep and Diane Keaton; “The Pallbearer,” with Gwyneth Paltrow and David Schwimmer; “Caught,” with Edward James Olmos; Dennis Hopper’s “Chasers;” “The Night We Never Met,” with Matthew Broderick and Annabella Sciorra; and “Father’s and Sons,” with Jeff Goldblum. Schram can be seen in the upcoming “Sure Hand of God,” with Gail O’Grady; and “Unconditional Love” with Kathy Bates.
On television, Schram has appeared in many critically-acclaimed series, including “Felicity,” “Roswell,” and “Strong Medicine.”
Schram is also an accomplished stage actor, having appeared as one of the original cast members in the Broadway hit, Neil Simon’s “Laughter on the 23rd Floor;” with Nathan Lane; Off-Broadway’s “Blackout” and “One Acts by Warren Leight;” as well as regional productions including “Slow Dance on the Killing Ground.”
