The stadium fell into disrepair and was torn down in the early 1990s. In 2004 the Rockford Park District approved a proposal to revamp Beyer Park. Proposed improvements include a new baseball diamond, new lighting, and a track.
A re-dedication of Beyer Field will occur on Saturday, June 5 at 1:00 pm. The history of Beyer Stadium will be celebrated as Rockford’s “field of dreams” for over 70 years, and members of the Rockford Peaches women’s baseball team will be honored, along with other ladies who played in the All American Girls Professional Baseball League. To commemorate this event, the Friends of Beyer Stadium and other donors have re-created the original score board, created a vintage backstop, and installed a flag pole that features the Rockford Peaches flag.
