ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) – Midway Village Museum’s sock monkey Nelson is decked out in Cubs gear to hopefully push the North siders to a World Series Championship.
The Museum’s Director of Marketing, Lonna Converso says that with everyone talking baseball, we shouldn’t forget Rockford’s own special relationship with the sport.
"Certainly everyone has a baseball story to tell. And Rockford certainly does with the Peaches team. We are reminded that they won 4 championships in a 12 year time frame. And we certainly over here at Midway Village Museum are excited about the Chicago Cubs and particularly, Nelson, he is rooting for the Cubs,” says Converso.
