How other teams decorate

This week’s Mehring Monday is a plea for help in tracking down pieces of history from Appleton Professional Baseball to help the Timber Rattlers decorate Time Warner Cable Field at Fox Cities Stadium when the renovations are complete.

The starting point was the sudden donation of these team autographed baseballs from the 1970s:

In the middle of that column, I mention the ways other teams use their history to decorate their stadiums.

Pictures are usually better than words.  Mine are about even, but you should get the general idea from the pictures below:

The first few are from the Cedar Rapids Kernels and their timeline of baseball in Cedar Rapids:

Cedar Rapids Hall of Fame 014

Cedar Rapids Hall of Fame 024

Cedar Rapids Hall of Fame 049

These are from Peoria’s timeline:

I thought I had a few from the conference room at Community Field and a few more of the historical photos from West Michigan. But, well, my filing system is ridiculous.

These should give you the general idea.
