Midwest League 1971

All-Star Game

All-Stars 5, Danville 1

Danville, Monday, July 12, 1971

The 1971 Midwest League All-Star Game was played at Danville Stadium on July 12, 1971. The game pitted a team of the league's best players, selected by an unknown method, against the Danville Warriors, who led the League in wins for the first half of the season.

The All-Stars won by a 5-1 score, with Burlington's Dan Ford (yup; Disco Dan) knocking in the go-ahead run with a solo homer to launch a four-run fourth. John D'Acquisto of Decatur was credited with the win for the Stars, while host Danville's Jerry O'Neill took 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 13, 1971, edition of the Burlington Hawk-Eye, which also contained a box score. The team selections were published in the July 9 edition of the the Hawk-Eye.
  • Burlington Manager Harry Bright led the All-Star squad, with coaching assistance from Bobby Dews (Cedar Rapids) and Joe Sparks (Appleton).
  • Three Danville players--outfielder Gorman Thomas and pitchers Dennis Yard & Rich Stonum--were selected to the All-Stars, regardless of their team's participation as the Stars' opposition. All appeared in the game for Danville, of course.
  • No official game MVP was selected.
  • Selected, but did not play: Denny Myers (P, Burlington), Glenn Abbott (P, Burlington), Paul Dade (3B, Quad Cities), Morris Nettles (OF, Quad Cities), Ted Hemenway (P, Cedar Rapids), Bruce Thompson (P, Cedar Rapids), Bill Campbell (P, Wisconsin Rapids), and Bob Maneely (P, Quincy).
