I just keep learning more and more as I do these posts on old Appleton Foxes Programs. Here is the 1980 Cover:
Jerry Zapp did many program covers – including the one above – for the Foxes. He also was the designer of the AF logo that the Foxes used.
Here is the thing that I learned. The Goodland Field (and Appleton Baseball) attendance record was not set back in 1964…it was set in 1977 with over 9,000…9,000?…No, almost 10,000! Look at the bottom panel.
Guess I need to head back to the microfilm again.
The 1980 Foxes Schedule:
From the 1980 Appleton Foxes program here is the 1979 Appleton Foxes team photo. If the Rattlers ever do another throwback jersey, these are the ones that they should do! Look at how those collars FLARE! BIG COLLARS! BRING THEM BACK!
Gaze upon the archetypes of Pitching, Hitting, Running, and Fielding from the cover of the 1978 Appleton Foxes Program:
The covers of the Foxes programs from 1964-1969 were about the same. If you look back at last week’s 1964 cover before looking at the 1968 cover below, you will see what I mean.
Remember that County Stadium was empty in 1968? Well, except for 10 Chicago White Sox games and since the Foxes were an affiliate of the White Sox, there was an order form in the program to catch those games:And here is an insert from a series against Quincy from the weekend of April 28 and 29. It is interesting that night games didn’t start until 7:45pm back in 1968. I wonder how the “HELP — help — HELP” plea for housing worked.
I didn’t know that we had this one until I started looking this morning. Amazing what you can find…when you are not looking for it.
The 1964 Fox Cities Foxes Program cover. A Colossus doth bestride the Fox Cities.
I wonder how many Foxes ran into an out trying to stretch a double into a triple at Goodland Field in an effort to get that free lunch.
This is going to be a fun one. Click for the larger images. Make sure to check out the .pdf files, too.
Somebody kept score during this game between the Foxes and the Clinton Pilots. No, the person didn’t stop scoring after seven innings. Appleton lost 1-0 on a 2-hitter in one of the games of a doubleheader. Also, Bleier’s Bar should be familiar to Steelers fans as well as Appleton locals.
Here is a fun couple of pages with pictures from Foxes History. Make sure to click on this page for the larger images. The team photo in front of the bus and the honorary firemen might be my favorites. I may crop these and post the photos individually later. But, this page is A-Level Awesome!
The first one is from a game between the Foxes and the Clinton Pilots. In 1970, the Pilots were an affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers. Jim Slaton is listed on the roster…but as Jim Slates.
This is an insert for a series against the Danville Warriors. Danville was a true co-op team with players from 12 different major league systems.
