ROCKFORD, Ill. (AP) — The northern Illinois city that figured prominently in the movie “A League of Their Own” may be getting a museum of its own. The Rockford Zoning Board of Appeals voted unanimously this week to grant a special-use to build a $10 million International Women’s Baseball Museum at Beyer Park on the city’s southeast side. The park was the actual home of the real Rockford Peaches of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League in the 1940s and 1950s. The issue now moves to a Rockford City Council committee on Monday and the full council on Oct. 4.
