Notes, Issues, Sources, and Mysteries

  • Based on game accounts in the Mattoon Journal-Gazette, the Harrisburg Daily Register and the Dixon Telegraph of August 12, 1947; this box score based on that published by the J-G. Some information comes from the August 8, 1947, Daily Register, which listed the players selected for the game.
  • Everett Johnston (West Frankfort), Charles Hawley (Centralia), and Mel Ivy (Marion) managed the Stars for three innings apiece. Belleville's Walt De Frietas managed his team with Frank Parenti (Mattoon) and Otto Huber (Mount Vernon) helping as coaches.
  • While I'm reasonably sure that Tolson played second base for the Stags, and that Pfeiffer's first hit was a double, both events are nearly illegible on the microfilm.
  • The seventh-inning All-Star run was forced in on a bases-loaded walk.
  • Everyone selected to the All-Star squad made an appearance on the field.
