That time of the year
There is a new Mehring Monday up on the main website. It takes a look at the career Raul Ibanez and his home runs.
Speaking of Raul Ibanez, some interesting documents were found as the front office prepared to move over to the new office building – 2350 N. Casaloma, Suite 102. Those documents are the scoresheets and long form boxscores from the first half of the 1994 Appleton Foxes season. Ibanez, Alex Rodriguez, and a few other future major league players were part of that team. I am still trying to figure out how to use them on the blog, but keep your eyes open on this space for a little bit more of Appleton Baseball History.
That time of the year – from the title of the post – would refer to the start of the Fall and Winter Leagues. Arizona Fall, Dominican Winter, and Venezuela Winter have all started within the last week. Australia and Puerto Rico will start soon.
As of now, 23 former Timber Rattlers have seen action in the three leagues that have begun play.
ARIZONA FALL LEAGUE:
Phoenix Desert Dogs:
LIGA VENEZUELA DE BEISBOL PROFESIONAL:
Cardenales de Lara:
Navagantes del Magallanes:
Bravos de Margarita:
Aquilas del Zulia:
Caribes de Anzoategui:
LIGA DE BEISBOL DOMINICANO:
Leones del Escogido:
Tigres del Licey:
No ex-Rattlers playing in the Mexican League that I could find. I’ll update this list once Puerto Rico and Australia begin play.
