Major League Baseball released the rosters for the 83rd annual MLB All-Star game today. Cedar Rapids Kernels alumni Mike Napoli (2001-02), Mike Trout (2009-10) and Mark Trumbo (2001-02) have been selected to the American League squad with Napoli getting the start behind the plate. The trio of Kernels alum bring the total number of MLB All-Star selections made by Cedar Rapids professi0nal baseball alumni to 85. 33 different Cedar Rapids professional baseball alumni have been selected to the All-Star game rosters. This is the fifth time there has been three Cedar Rapids professional baseball alumni players selected to the same All-Star game (2012, 2007, 1991, 1984 and 1966). We have never had more than three appear in the same season. Lou Boudreau was our first All-Star and made six straight All-Star teams between 1940-45, the longest such streak by a Cedar Rapids professional baseball alumni.

Lou Boudreau (Cedar Rapids Raiders -1938) and Ted Simmons (Cedar Rapids Cardinals – 1967) lead the way with eight selections each. Trevor Hoffman (Cedar Rapids Reds – 1991) earned seven All-Star selections, Rocky Colavito (Cedar Rapids Indians – 1952) and Allie Reynolds (1940-41) made six appearances, Paul O’Neill (Cedar Rapids Reds – 1982) was selected five times and John Roseboro (Cedar Rapids Raiders – 1955) made four appearances at the mid season classic.

This Date in Cedar Rapids Professional Baseball – June 3, 1952 – Burlington 1, Cedar Rapids 0

This full article was written by Gus Schrader and was published in the June 4, 1952 edition of the Cedar Rapids Gazette. It contained coverage of a Three-I League game against the Burlington Flints held on June 3, 1952. The 1952 Cedar Rapids Indians featured six players who played in Major League baseball either before or after their time in Cedar Rapids (Orie Arntzen, Jimmy Bloodworth, Rocky Colavito, Bud Daley, Billy Harrell and Dolan Nichols). Al Smith, a long-time member of the Cedar Rapids baseball board of directors, also played for the 1952 squad. Chuck Harmon of the Burlington Flints is mentioned in the article. He went on to become the first African American to appear in a MLB game for the Cincinnati Reds on April 17, 1954.

Three Games Behind, Indians Use Daley Tonight

Weather permitting, the Cedar Rapids Indians will lead with their ace tonight in an attempt to pull back within hailing distance of the Three-I League lead. Bud Daley, whose southpaw hooks have earned him a 6-2 record will face Burlington’s Dick Schoonover (2-2) in the second game of a projected nine-game home stand.

The Indian mound staff is a little worse for recent wear, although you wouldn’t have known it by the fine pitching job provided Tuesday night by Jackie Bowes and Wally Harr. Daley will be pitching despite a heavy cold and the fact he hurled 4 2/3 innings of fine relief ball Monday night at Burlington.

It was the lack of clutch hitting that permitted Burlington to take a 1-0 win Monday night, although outhit by the Indians, 6 to 3. The Indians even bunched two of their hits in one inning on two different occasions, but couldn’t score off Ed James, Flints right-hander who hurled for Tulsa in the Texas League earlier this year.

Perhaps the Indians can receive inspiration tonight from a band of real Indians. Ten original Americans from the Tama Indians settlement will stage a war dance around home plate at 7:30 tonight, so maybe the Cedar Rapids Tribe will be encouragedto more war-like gestures with the baseball bat after the game starts.

As it was Monday night, about the most damage they could do with the offerings of James was a lusty foul ball by Al Smith that scored a loud direct hit on a light bulb above the grandstand.

In fact, James had the Indians popping up all night as he hung up his fifth straight win since entering the league. He even pinned the horsecollar on manager Jimmy Bloodworth, the Three-I’s top batter, in four trips.The final time was the most painful for 1,652 Indian fans. Bloodworth came to bat in the ninth with two out, the tying run at third and the winning run at first. But the best he could do against James’ careful chucking was a lazy fly ball to left field.

James fanned six and walked only one in getting the shutout. Mickey Finn, continuing the solid hitting he demonstrated Monday night at Burlington, got two singles and Jim Fishback raised his bat average to .330 with two others.

Bowes pitched well enough to win almost any game. The Flints put the barb into him for their only run in the fourth. Chuck Harmon, the professional basketball player who holds down third base for Burlington, led off with a double down the left field line. With one out, Hy Prosk poked a single down the middle for the game’s only RBI.

Aside from that, the only hit off Bowes was Cotton Chafin’s single in the sixth. Chafin was rubbed out trying to steal, as was Hal Treinen, who walked in the ninth. Bowes fanned six and walked two. Harr hurled the ninth without incident after Rocky Colavito had batted for Bowes in the eighth.

The game was played without error, and it was a quickie; an hour and 53 minutes. James faces only 27 Indians in the first eight innings – three over the minimum – and Bowes pitched to only 28 Flints in the same span.

Cy Slapnicka, long-time Cleveland scout, was a spectator at the game, watching the first home appearance of the outfielder he recently signed for the Indians – Bob Diers of Nebraska U.

Diers didn’t show a great deal, as he fanned twice and hit into a double play in three trips before being lifted for a pinch hitter. Slap expressed confidence that Diers would come along better after he had the feel of things.

“Bob has been cramming for exams the last couple of weeks so he could graduate,” said Slap, “and he hasn’t been playing ball. Give him a couple of weeks and he’ll come around in good shape. This boy is big, powerful and fast. He’s bound to make the grade.”
