Midwest League 1974

All-Star Game

All-Stars 3, Iowa Oaks 2

Cedar Rapids, Monday, July 22, 1974

The 1974 Midwest League All-Star Game was played at Veterans Memorial Stadium in Cedar Rapids on July 22, 1974. A team of the league's best players, selected by the league's managers and sports writers, faced the American Association's Iowa Oaks.

The Midwest League Stars scored two in the first on an Al Woods home run, then plated the winning run when Moe Hill--already being billed as the MWL's "Old Man"--singled in Ron Farkas to end the game in the thirteenth inning. Dubuque's Dave Garcia was credited with the win; Iowa's Ken Tatum was the losing pitcher.

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 23, 1974, editions of the Wisconsin Rapids Tribune, the Cedar Rapids Gazette, and the Des Moines Register; the Gazette and the Register included box scores. The team selections were published in the July 14 edition of the the Register and the July 15 Trib.
  • Wisconsin Rapids Manager John Goryl led the All-Star squad, with coaching assistance from John Sullivan of Waterloo and Jimy Williams of Quad Cities.
  • No official game MVP was selected.
  • Selected, but did not play: Pitcher Mike Messman (Wisconsin Rapids), pitcher Frank Panick (Quad Cities), pitcher Julio Division (Decatur), catcher Tom Mutz (Dubuque), outfielder Ruppert Jones (Waterloo), and outfielder Larry Foster (Appleton). Mutz was injured, and Messman was scheduled to pitch the fourteenth inning; the others had been promoted before the game began.
  • A mystery: The Register's July 14 roster listing includes a Ramon Jiminez I've not been able to identify. They seem to think he played for Clinton.
