Cedar Rapids All Star Games – All-Time Cedar Rapids MWL All Star Selections

The Cedar Rapids Kernels closed out the first half with a four game winning streak. Three Kernels were selected to attend the 2012 Midwest League All-Star game that will be held tonight at Kane County. Kaleb Cowart, Ty Kelley and Stephen Tromblee will represent the West squad and the Kernels at the event. As our other players get a few days off, I will be writing / transcribing a few All-Star stories from our past.

My fourth All-Star installment in the series is a list of every player who has been selected to represent Cedar Rapids at the summer All-Star game. I am still working on the data from 1985-87. Apologies to the Cedar Rapids Reds fans for the data gap. Some reason the Cedar Rapids Gazette archives online are unavailable between 1985 and 1988. I was able to fill some of the gaps utilizing MWLGuide.com and our older programs in the Kernels Hall of Fame Collection. If anyone has the all-star rosters from 1985-87, I would appreciate updated info. Here is my best effort up to this point. 176 Midwest League All-Star selections and counting.

This Date in Cedar Rapids Professional Baseball – June 5, 1990 – Cedar Rapids Reds 8, Waterloo Diamonds 3

This full article appeared in the June 6, 1990 edition of the Cedar Rapids Gazette. It contained coverage of a Midwest League game against the Waterloo Diamonds held on June 5, 1990. The 1990 Cedar Rapids Reds featured nine players who played in Major League baseball either before or after their time in Cedar Rapids (Mike Anderson, Bobby Ayala, Jeff Branson, Bill Risley, Reggie Sanders, Mo Sanford, Jerry Spradlin, Glenn Sutko and Ed Taubensee). The 1990 Cedar Rapids Reds squad finished with a 88-46 record under manager Dave Miley. Quad Cities defeated them in the opening round of the Midwest League Playoffs.

C.R. Reds Down Waterloo

Mike Anderson pitched a three-hit shutout for eight innings and Chris Lombardozzi’s three-run home run capped a three-hit, five-run seventh inning as the Cedar Rapids Reds defeated the Waterloo Diamonds, 8-3, in Midwest League baseball Tuesday night. The win was Anderson’s fourth in five decisions.

The Reds scored a run in the first inning on the first of Reggie Sanders’ three hits, a walk, a passed ball and Scott Bryant’s RBI fielder’s choice. They made it 2-0 in the second when Ed Taubensee walked, Waterloo right fielder Ossie Sanchez misplayed Rick Allen’s fly for an error, and Eddie Rush delivered a RBI single.

The Cedar Rapids seventh opened with a pair of fly outs. Then Allen’s single generated an error, Rush walked and Todd Embry replaced Diamonds starter Billy Reid. J.D. Norland misplayed Sanders’ fly deep to left for a two-run triple, Tony Terzarial walked and Lombardozzi delivered his first home run of the season.

Mike Mulvaney led off the Reds’ eighth with his fourth homer of the season. Anderson lost his shutout when Steve Martin led off the Waterloo ninth with a homer. With one out, Anderson gave up two hits. With two out, he gave up Matt Witkowski’s to-run single, and gave way to Doug King. King ended the game on two pitches.
