ROCKFORD - The kickoff to the Rockford Peaches 75th Anniversary celebration to benefit the International Women’s Baseball Center is off to a rousing start with IWBC Chairman Dr. Kat Williams to appear on morning shows for television and radio.
Williams and IWBC board member Greg Schwanke will be part of a live remote on Rockford’s WREX-TV 13 from 5 a.m. to 7 a.m. Friday morning. WREX’s Austin Love is hosting the show at the BMO Harris Bank Center to publicize Rockford Peaches night by the Rockford IceHogs minor league hockey team.
A section of the BMO has been set aside Friday night for Peaches fans at a special cost of $15. Of the $15, $5 will go toward the IWBC capital campaign to build a $7 million educational center and museum in Rockford. Check out the show in the morning and then catch the game at night.
Dr. Williams and Schwanke will be up again early Saturday morning. The two will be on the WROK 1440 AM Stateline Sports Hour. The show, which runs from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m., is hosted by Peaches 75th Anniversary publicity chair Alex Gary and Tom Warner. Warner has a special tie as well. He’s related to Margaret Jurengsmeier Carroll, who pitched for the Peaches in the 1951 season, winning one game in nine appearances.
So check out Dr. Williams and Schwanke Saturday morning as well.
