One of the brightest parts of the city of Rockford's history, is the Rockford Peaches baseball team. From 1943 until 1054, the Rockford Peaches were part of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. Rockford's team was one of the founding member of the league. The team was wonderfully portrayed in the Penny Marshall-directed film, A League of their Own

You can't go a day in Rockford without seeing the Rockford Peaches logo on a shirt, a sign, a poster, even a uniform replica a little girl falling in love with baseball. Now, comes the latest must-have Rockford Peaches collectible.
