Midwest League 1982

All-Star Game

South 4, North 2

Davenport (Quad City), Iowa, Wednesday, July 14, 1982

The 1982 Midwest League All-Star Game was played at John O'Donnell Stadium in Davenport on July 14, 1982. Two teams of the league's best players, selected by an unknown method (likely a ballot of the league managers), faced off for league supremacy.

The South took the lead in the second on Steve Kiefer's (Burlington) two-run homer and never surrendered it in a low-scoring game. Clinton's Mark Grant was winning pitcher and game MVP, with Martin Artunez of Beloit picking up the South's save. The loss went to Springfield's Fred Silva.

Notes, Issues, Sources, and Mysteries

  • Based on the (unbalanced and otherwise problematical) box score in the 1995 Midwest League Yearbook, with help from game account in the July 15, 1982, edition of the Burlington Hawk-Eye, which included a better (but still unbalanced) box score. I believe mine is right, but it disagrees with both. The team selections were published in the July 4 edition of the Hawk-Eye.
  • An Old-Timers All-Star game was played before the contest. Lefty Gomez, Lou Boudreau, Ernie Banks, Bob Feller, Tony Oliva, Jose Cardenal, and Jim Perry were among those expected, according to the pre-game writeups. Looks like it was these guys against some former MWL All-Stars. Couldn't find a result for this game.
  • Appleton manager Adrian Garrett led the North squad, with assistance from coaches Terry Bevington (Beloit) and Brad Fischer (Madison). Springfield manager Dave Bialas was the Southern skipper, with coaches George Enright (Quad City) and Aureleo Monteagudo (Danville).
  • Mark Grant of Clinton was selected as the game's Most Valuable Player. To date, he's the only pitcher to win this honor.
  • Selected, but did not play: Danny Cox (P, Springfield), Tom Dozier (P, Springfield), Curt Heidenreich (P, Cedar Rapids), Ron Kaufman (P, Quad City), Dave Nix (2B, Appleton), Glenn Barling (P, Clinton), Larry Crews (P, Clinton), Art Niemann (P, Appleton), and Mike Tanzi (P, Appleton).
