Artists Jenny Ustick and Atalie Gagnet wrapped up the project at 206 Seventh St. on Tuesday. It features six former Peaches players in black-and-white set against a bright, multicolored backdrop that pops off the brick wall at the corner of Seventh Street and First Avenue.
There are also shadows of two Black players who were kept out of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League because of their race. Those images pay tribute to Toni Stone and Mamie Johnson, who went on to be two of three women to play in the previously all-male Negro league.
The Ohio-based artists are also responsible for an 815-themed mural at 815 E. State St. this year. Previously, they painted World War II pilot Libby Gardner near State and Water streets downtown in 2019. They also made a depiction of Mila Rose, a young girl whose family has deep roots in south Rockford, at La Chiquita, 1108 S. Main St., in 2021.
