Flashback Friday Supplement for 2/18

This picture is from an old program.  I had to crop it down to fit it for this Week’s Flashback Friday (link available when it is posted LINK POSTED), but I wanted to post the whole thing here because there is nothing that is not awesome about it.  Click for a much, much larger version.

Flashback Friday Supplement for 12/10

Flashback Friday will be posted at the home page in a bit is now posted.

Here are a few pictures to go along with the Flashback, which is about the pre-game events before Opening Day, 1940. That would be the first Opening Day in Appleton Papermakers history.

And this is Eddie Dancisak, the first manager in Appleton Papermakers history.  He also played for the Papermakers.

Eddie Dancisak.jpgYes, that has been traced/outlined for definition. Photoshop was very rudimentary back in 1940.

One of the ads on the page with the story in today’s Flashback is for Marvels Cigarettes. It looks a little like this one:MarvelCigarettes.jpg

Flashback Friday Supplement for 11/19

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.

Flashback Friday Supplement for 11/12

This is a picture of Mickey Abarbanel:

Abarbanel was the left-handed, fire-balling ace of the Fox Cities Foxes in 1966.  As part of No-no November, this week’s Flashback Friday takes you back to his No-hitter against the Wisconsin Rapids Twins on May 28, 1966.

That piece will be going up on the main website soon.  There will be a link when it is ready.

UPDATE: Here is the link and – as mentioned at that link – here is the boxscore from that chilly May evening at Goodland Field:

Boardwalk and Baseball

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.

I

Run away.  Run away!
