The Starfires, Rockford's women's baseball team, was formed in 2012 and calls the newly renovated Beyer Stadium their home. Beyer was once home to the Rockford Peaches between 1943 and 1954. Women's hardball is the same game played by the Rockford Peaches in the 1940s, with a 9" baseball, 90' bases and overhand pitching.
Starfires home games are a fun event for the whole family. Concessions are available on game days. No alcohol allowed. Games are nine innings and start at 10 a.m. All game dates are double headers unless otherwise noted (subject to change).
