Pictures first. Video second.
And since this is where I’ll be spending the majority of my time, I will start with Home Radio:
Here is what my brothers in sound from around the MWL have in store for them:
The press box has been expanded, too:
Inside a suite on the club level:
Yes. This photo was taken on a different day. At least the Sun was out when I took this one.
We tried some different camera movements in this video! Enjoy!
I just happened to be over at the stadium today and I saw something wonderful that needed to be shared before we shot the next video update.
The tarp has been taken down from some of the upper level.
We’ll have video and more photos next week. Have a great weekend, everyone! Think Spring!
Just like last week. Pictures first. Video second.
If you’ll indulge me, here is my new apartment…I mean, home radio booth.
This is the new bullpen area. Bullpen as in “area for office workers” not as in “place for pitchers to warm up before entering a game”.
If you look to the right when you are near the front of the stadium, you will see the new entrance to the front office.
If you look to the left from the same spot, you will see the new team store.
And here is the view from one of the upstairs camera platforms:
Let’s get this snow out of here!
In the meantime, here is the video:
This week: Photos AND video!
First the pictures:
Now, the video brings it all together with views of some areas that have not been seen before this episode:
The pleas for old stuff seems to be working. Jim Riedl dropped off a scrapbook from 1941 that includes many Papermakers photos.
Last week’s Flashback Friday covered a walkoff homer by Pat Seerey. This week’s Mehring Monday covers all those glorious photos.
In the top photo: Several fedoras, lots, of ties, one cigarette, and either a hearing aid or an earpiece for a radio (Gentleman in the lower left corner) in attendance at Goodland Field for the 1941 opener.
In the bottom photo: Wisconsin State League President Herman D. White and Appleton Papermakers President William Van Dyke.
This photo shows Papermakers manager Eddie Dancisak and Appleton Junior Chamber of Commerce chairman Parker Schultz shaking hands before the first game of 1941.
Pat Seerey is the focus of the top three photos from The Milwaukee Journal. On the lower left photo, Seerey is mobbed after his walkoff homer to beat Sheboygan. The Goodland Field crowd goes wild after Seerey’s big hit in the lower right photo.
These were the players that showed up for Papermakers Spring Training at Goodland Field in 1941.
The Smith referred to in the photos below would be Red Smith. Yes. The Red Smith of The Red Smith Banquet that is held in Appleton every January.
I love that the fans were so into the rivalry that they brought props!
Bottom photo: Guess where in Appleton this is.
Sadly, this is not a photo of Goodland Field. This is the ballpark in Green Bay.
Photo on left: I think I saw this set up in a Three Stooges short. Photo on right: This reminds me of when I used to play American Legion baseball.
Photo on left: Pat Seerey gets measured for a pair of shoes that he won after hitting a home run! Photo on right: Seerey reads about his exploits on a teammate’s newspaper, the smartphone of it’s day.
This is Hal Irelan, a scout for Cleveland. He is watching the game from way down the line in leftfield. Irelan played 67 games for the Phillies in 1914 and managed in the minors, too.
The Papermakers get together for a team meal on the road. I noted the Norman Rockwell feel to this photo when I tweeted it the other day. What do you think?
This is from the end of the season as Pat Seerey ties that pair of shose he won.
Superstition led the Papermakers to not shave during a long winning streak towards the end of the 1941 season. Here a few players get rid of their stubble. Not the photos on the wall. The editor writing the caption sure did.
Here are few of the players from early in the 1941 season. Swede Erickson (2nd from right on the top row) is the grandfather of current Rattlers manager Matt Erickson.
Eight lads for the 1941 opener against Sheboygan!
This is a team photo from later in the 1941 season. Note the caption again: Papermakers Entertain Ladies Tonight.
I hope you enjoyed the walk back to 1941. Keep those old photos and programs and memorabilia coming into the office!
I think that we will have video next week!
For now, photos.
Why not start with the shot with the most interest? Let’s go!
Bob Bruehl stopped by the temporary offices of the Timber Rattlers on Monday with a folder and something else under his arm. Mr. Bruehl, a bat boy for the Appleton Foxes in 1964, said that he was clearing some stuff out of his house and asked if we would like to have what he didn’t need anymore.
We saw what he had and we said yes.
If you remember this Mehring Monday column from this past December, we are looking for items from the history of Appleton baseball to help decorate the newly renovated Time Warner Cable Field at Fox Cities Stadium. I would like to think that Mr. Bruehl read that column and decided to bring the items below in to us. But, if he didn’t, that’s fine, too.
Thank you, sir. We will find a place for these pieces of Appleton Baseball History.
Here is a photo of an old Foxes Seat Cushion and a 1984 Foxes program with some autographs.
In the folder, were photos of Foxes teams from 1963, 1964, 1967, and 1969. The teams of 1964, 1967, and 1969 won the Midwest League pennant.
Lots to get to today. Drywall! Insulation! Concrete! SNOW! Let’s go!!!
I am still without a videographer. However, JP Cadorin of Sports32 was at the stadium on Wednesday to work on a story for next week’s show. Check your local listings!
For now….Photographs! (Click for larger version)
Lots, lots more after the break!
