Notes, Issues, Sources, and Mysteries

  • Based on the box score in the 1995 Midwest League Yearbook, with help from the game accounts in the July 14, 1967, editions of the Appleton Post-Crescent and the Waterloo Daily Courier (which also has a box score). A list of players selected as All-Star team starters was published in the Post-Crescent on July 13.
  • Alex Cosmidis of Appleton managed the All-Stars; I've not discovered the names of any coaches who worked the game. Manager Ray Bellino of Wisconsin Rapids presumably worked that side of the diamond.
  • Despite Dodders' three-homer performance, no game MVP seems to have been selected. Nonetheless, this appears to be the best-ever performance in a Midwest League All-Star Game.
  • Cedar Rapids second baseman Jim Gruber was selected to the All-Star team but didn't appear in the game. (There may have been others, as I've not found a comprehensive list.)
  • The All-Star ballots were mailed very late, which generated complaints from the voters--especially in Waterloo, where no votes were cast because no ballots were received. (To be fair, Waterloo official scorer Russ Smith didn't think he, or the other scorers, should have had a vote; he also doubted that the GMs were generally qualified.) Wisconsin Rapids manager Ray Bellino objected that none of his team members were eligible for All-Star selection under the rules.
  • The league hosted a Miss Midwest League beauty pageant as part of the festivities. 19-year-old Barbara Marion of Quincy, Illinois, was selected queen.
