Arm Chair Travelers: Peaches and Baseball

March 10 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

Are you ready for baseball? The 1992 film, A League of Their Own, introduced modern America to the Women of the Greatest Generation who played professional baseball to keep up the morale on the American Home Front during WW2. The All-American Girls Professional Baseball League was so successful that it continued for nearly a decade after the war ended. Who were the real women who joined the league that inspired the film? Join Rebecca Tulloch, a modern Rockford Peach and manager of the “League of Our Own” vintage softball team, as she traces the truth and fiction about the film, A League of their Own.
