February 2, 2007 - LOVES PARK, Ill. – Three former Rockford Peaches have been added to the guest list for next weekend’s Rockford RiverHawks FanFest 2007.

Aldine Thomas, Barb Thompson and Doris Johnson, who all played for the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League team, will be at the annual fan event. FanFest 2007 is scheduled for 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Sunday, February 11, 2007 at Cousin’s Bar & Grill, 510 S. Perryville. Tickets are just $6 and can be purchased at the RiverHawks box office, by phone, or at Cousin’s.

The Peaches will have their own autograph table at FanFest. The AAGPBL is offering autographed Peaches posters for an additional $6, with all proceeds going towards this summer’s Rockford reunion of AAGPBL players. In addition, they are offering Peaches bobbleheads, DVDs of the league’s 1988 inclusion in the National Baseball Hall of Fame and a video display loop of rare game footage from the 1940s and 1950s.

Fans who purchase a full-season ticket package will have special VIP status at Fan Fest. Not only will they receive a free ticket to Fan Fest for every season ticket purchased, but they will have exclusive access to Smith and the other guests for the first 30 minutes of Fan Fest. In addition, they can bring up to two items to be autographed by each celebrity. Other fans can enter the autograph line at 11:30 a.m. and are limited to one autograph per celebrity.

In addition, fans who purchase a 10-game miniseason plan prior to FanFest will receive a free ticket for the event.

Other guests who have committed to FanFest include former Chicago Cubs Fergie Jenkins, a Hall of Famer, and Lee Smith, the onetime career saves leader.

The RiverHawks are the Western Division champions of the Frontier League, a 12-team independent professional baseball league that will play its 15th season in 2007. Advertising, season-ticket and suite information is available by calling the box office at (815) 885-2255. Fans can also visit the RiverHawks online at www.rockfordriverhawks.com.
