Rockford Peaches top players featured

In August 1943, the Rockford Register-Republic featured photos of some of the Rockford Peaches leading players.

They aren’t terribly clear, but there are close ups of their young faces that I like. And another thing I like — these were taken in August 1943, just a couple of months after the first game, and the rules about the length of their skirts have gone right out the window!
