No-no November continues this week with a look back at R. Wayne McCauley’s no-hitter for the Foxes against the Quincy Cubs on June 17, 1972. The gem occurred in the first game of a doubleheader at Goodland Field. There will be a link to the Flashback on the main website when the story is posted. (AND HERE IT IS!)
The best picture that I could find of McCauley is at the bottom of this post on the 1970’s All-Decade Team.
Here is the boxscore from his no-hitter game.
Quincy – 0

The year was 1994. The Appleton Foxes had just wrapped up their final season at Goodland Field. The decision had been made that there would be a new name and new logo to go with the new stadium.
The reason for this particular Flashback this week is the announcement of the new logos on the way for the Timber Rattlers. (By the way, you may check out Fang’s new countdown video over here. Good grouping!)
Where was I?…..Oh, right, 1994! Below are four logos (and three names) that were considered as a replacement for the Appleton Foxes. There will be a link to the Flashback on this post when it goes up on the main website. For now, enjoy and think what might have been. (UPDATE: Here’s that link. Read through to see which other teams were in the running with Seattle to be the parent club of Appleton Pro Baseball)
These are a couple of pictures that would not fit in to this week’s Flashback post on the main site.

This week’s Friday Flashback mainly deals with the attendance for the Appleton Foxes at Goodland Field for the 1987 season (as of mid-July). BUT,
There is a bit in there about the Kansas City Royals, the Foxes parent club at the time, moving their Spring Training site to the new Boardwalk and Baseball theme park. I don’t know about you but when I hear the words Boardwalk and Baseball, my thoughts run to this place.
Run away. Run away!
