Flashback Friday Supplement – 1969 Foxes Bus photo

If you caught today’s Flashback Friday on the Timber Rattlers website, you saw a cropped photo of the 1969 Appleton Foxes.  They are posing before heading out on their final road trip of the season.

Here’s that whole photo  – with the caption to identify all the people.

My only wishes are that it would be to have the color photo….And to see if we could get the Timber Rattlers players and coaches of 2014 to wear matching outfits on a bus ride.

Everyone Must Root for the Foxes

I stopped in at the library today.  I needed to replenish my supply of stories for the return of Flashback Friday. (Tentatively set for September 27 – two weeks from today).

This ad screamed at me as I looked through the early 1991 Appleton Foxes season for some ideas.  I did put it up on twitter, but to share it with everyone…..

I would like to know how they would enforce this Everyone Must Root for the Foxes policy.  They probably could have picked out who was not rooting for the Foxes for one of those dates.  Sadly, the attendance for a doubleheader on frigid May 6, 1991 was 74.  As in 74.

Nathan Baliva of the Chiefs let me now the following information:  Pitcher David Swartzbaugh was – not including a rehab appearance by Rick Sutcliffe – the only future major leaguer on that 1991 Chiefs team.

Flashback Friday will need to take a look at some of the other Foxes/Papermakers newspaper ads…at least on the blog.
