The Rockford IceHogs are going all out for this year's Pink in the Rink night.
The American Hockey League affiliate of the Chicago Blackhawks will wear pink uniforms, resembling those worn by the Rockford Peaches of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, and dye their ice pink as part of the promotion against Ontario on Jan. 26.
The IceHogs uniforms will celebrate the 75th anniversary of women's pro baseball in Rockford. The Peaches were a flagship member of the pro league, which operated from 1943-54 and was made famous by the 1992 movie "A League of their Own."
Each of the Peaches-inspired uniforms will be auctioned off with proceeds benefiting breast-cancer research. The IceHogs have raised more than $180,000 for breast cancer since their first Pink in the Rink night in 2010.
