An excellent all-around defensive stalwart, Joan Berger joined the Women’s Professional League with the Rockford Peaches right after graduating from high school in 1951. She got her start playing ball in a highly competitive girls softball league in the Garfield New Jersey area during her high school days. Joan Berger was selected an All Star as a second baseman for the Peaches in 1952, and played two more years in Rockford before leaving to raise her family.
