April 30, 1960 & April 30, 1985

50 years ago today:

The Fox Cities Foxes were rained out again. Well, according to the paper it was a rain/snow mix that forced the postponement in Burlington.

This was the third straight Foxes game that had been postponed by the weather. They will try again on May 1 in Burlington with a doubleheader. Hint: The forecast for that doubleheader does not look good.

25 years ago today:

APPLETON..101 100 030 - .6 13..2
MADISON...000 100 000 -..1..5..1

WP: Kevin Renz (3-1)

The Foxes handed the Muskies their third loss of the season with a 6-1 decision at Warner Park. Kevin Renz held Madison in check as he worked eight innings, allowed one run on four hits, walked five, and struck out seven.

Mike Taylor was one of the hitting heroes for Appleton. He was 3-for-5 with a run, a stolen base, and two RBI out of the leadoff spot.

Troy Thomas added two RBI and John Caianiello had three hits and an RBI.

Madison still led the Northern Division of the Midwest League with a record of 16-3. The Foxes were 12-6, 3.5 games back.

The teams return to Goodland Field to continue their series on May 1, 1985.
