Additional Information

Stars from A League of Their Own will join entertainers and actors in a "1940s Rockford Peaches baseball game-themed" evening of family fun. Ticket holders choose from a Tailgate Party with free ballpark fare and desserts to a VIP Private Party for photos with the stars.

Guests can partake of cash bar offerings from the Peach Pub, Home Plate or 10th Inning Bars. Original AAGPBL players will be on hand for autographs and photos. The evening ends with a lighthearted program in the theater with a "peach diamond pendant" live auction from the stage.
