50 Years Ago Today:
FOX CITIES FOXES 13
Dean Chance went the route and the offense banged out 14 hits. Plus, the Reds committed seven errors in the game.
Jim Carver went 3-for-4 with four RBI to lead the offense.
The Foxes received some welcome news from elsewhere on August 23, 1960. The Cedar Rapids Braves swept a doubleheader from Sioux City. The Foxes picked up 1.5 games over the Soos with their win in Topeka.
The Foxes are 76-47, in first place in the Three-I League, and they are 9.5 games in front of second place Sioux City.
25 Years Ago:
After playing a one-game series in Madison on August 22, 1985, the Appleton Foxes were scheduled to play a one game series in Wausau on August 23, 1985.
The game at Wausau Athletic Park was rained out and since it was the final meeting of the season between the Foxes and Timbers, the game would not be made up.
Appleton is still in first place in the Northern Division of the Midwest League. They are 82-47 and will start a two game series with second place Kenosha at Goodland Field on August 24, 1985.
