Fun for both the young or young at heart, take a tour or catch a baseball game at League Stadium, the Hollywood set where “A League of Their Own” starring Tom Hanks and Geena Davis was filmed. The historic stadium, owned by the City of Huntingburg, was the home field to the Rockford Peaches in the movie. In the months of June and July, cheer on the Dubois County Bombers and experience America’s favorite pastime at its best with an electric atmosphere, food & drink options as good as any Major League ballpark (at an affordable price) and great baseball! The team plays in retro styled uniforms to bring you back to the era depicted in the movie, while the Peaches entertain the fans in the stadium! In the off-season, book a tour of the stadium to learn the significant history of the stadium and its prior use before the film along with behind-the-scenes stories that took place when the movie was being filmed.
