ROCKFORD (WREX)- If you have a daughter who wants to play baseball just like the Rockford Peaches, an opportunity is now available to do so.
The Rockford area’s first all-girls little league team, called the Hawker’s Lil’ Peaches, is looking for players ages 6-8.
The team will compete in the Harlem Community Center Summer Ball League and compete against all-boy teams.
“We just wanted to get the girls a chance after finishing t-ball to play with the boys and learn fundamentals to have the choice to play baseball or softball,” says Coach Bethany Morlan.
Opening day is June 1, if you’d like to sign up, head to the Harlem Community Center.
