Dorothy Harrell / by Molly Schiot

A five time All-Star, Harrell played for the Rockford Peaches for eight seasons.  A gifted shortstop and slap hitter, Harrell was instrumental in helping the Peaches win four championship titles.  She is regarded as one of the best shortstops, male or female, to ever play the game.  At Seattle's Safeco Field, her image and achievements are celebrated on a 10 foot banner, between baseball legends Roberto Clemente and Brooks Robinson.
