As we saw in 2018 with our Rockford Peaches 75th Anniversary Celebration, the Rockford region has huge numbers of fans of this beloved team and the movie that made them famous around the world.
The International Women’s Baseball Center (IWBC) and its League of Their Own 30th Celebration (LOTO30) Committee has chosen July 1st to kick-off this two-day party for Rockford because it will be 30 years to that the movie premiered – July 1, 1992.
