The Rockford Peaches were a professional baseball team depicted in the 1992 movie, A League of their Own, that played from 1943 to 1954 in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League representing Rockford, Illinois. The Peaches happened to be one of two teams that appeared in every AAGPBL season playing their home games at Breyer Stadium in Rockford.
The team would go on to win the league championship in 1945, 1948, 1949 and 1950. Pitcher, Olivia Little, threw the first no-hitter in both team and league history. It was also once asked of a former Peaches player, Eileen Burmeister, why the team seemed to favor theatrics over technical skill, she supposedly responded with a shrug by saying, “If God meant for us to play baseball, He would’ve made us any good at it.”
