50 Years Ago Today:

The Fox Cities Foxes had a Day/Night Doubleheader at old Veterans Memorial Stadium in Cedar Rapids.


Chuck Symeon one walk, seven strikeouts for the win. Win number eight in a row and a record of 31-20


Jim Montgomery went 3-for-5 with three runs for win number nine in a row. The Foxes are 32-20, in first place in the Three-I League, and they are 2.5 games in front of Sioux City.

25 Years Ago Today:
.............................R H E
APPLETON FOXES 300 000 100 - 4 8 1
WAUSAU TIMBERS 030 003 00x - 6 7 1

Jim Winters hit a three-run homer in the top of the first. Nezzie Balelo hit a three-run homer in the bottom of the second off Tony Menendez.

The Timbers broke a 3-3 tie with three runs in the bottom of the sixth inning. The go-ahead run scored on a wild pitch. Then, Mark Machalec singled to drive in a pair of runs.

Menendez lost for just the second time of the season.

Appleton is 48-22 they lead Madison by 10.5 games.

Also, the Foxes had nine players named to the Northern Division All-Star team. They were: Pitchers Tony Menendez and Dave White, catcher Jim Markert, first baseman Tom Forrester, second baseman Jerry Bertolani, outfielder Jim Winters, and designated hitter Mike Taylor.

Since there were three divisions in the Midwest League at the time, the Northern Division All-Star Squad consisted of the four Northern Division teams (Appleton, Madison, Wausau, Kenosha) and two of the central division teams (Beloit and Clinton).

Also, since there was no split season in 1985, the All-Star game would be held in July – on the 8th of July in Springfield, Illinois to be exact.
