Midwest League 1970

All-Star Game

All-Stars 10, Quincy 7

Quincy, Monday, July 13, 1970

The 1970 Midwest League All-Star Game was played at Quincy's Q Stadium on July 13, 1970. The game pitted a team of the league's best players, as selected by the league managers and media representatives, against the Quincy Cubs, who won the first half championship.

The All-Stars won a 10-7 slugfest. Clinton center fielder Wilbur Howard (four hits, three runs scored--and two errors), Quad Cities shortstop Sam Ashford (three hits, two RBIs), and Appleton catcher Ron Davini (3 RBIs) led the All-Stars to victory over the host Cubs. Waterloo's Doug Bird notched the win for the Stars, while Quincy's Ron Jones absorbed the loss.

Notes, Issues, Sources, and Mysteries

  • Based on the box score in the 1995 Midwest League Yearbook, with help from the game account in the July 14, 1970, edition of the Appleton Post-Crescent, which also contained a box score. The team selections were published in the July 8 edition of the the Cedar Rapids Gazette and other papers.
  • A selection oddity: Andy Rodriguez was not announced as an All-Star selection with the other team members, but was added to the roster when late ballots put him within a half-vote of leader Ron Davini. Gene Dusan finished third--another half-vote back--in the vote count for catchers.
  • Frank Calo of Danville managed the All-Stars, with QC's Mike Stubbins and CR's Roy Majtyka selected as his coaching staff for the game.
  • Quincy pitchers Ron Jones, Joe Stover, and Jim Todd were all selected for the All-Star team, independent of their team's participation as the team's opposition.
  • No official game MVP was selected.
  • Selected, but did not play: Quincy's Joe Stover and Jim Hardin, Appleton's Duane Shaffer, and Decatur's Ed Figueroa. All were pitchers, and two would have played on the other team had they appeared in the game.
