Dan Warren - Although the route they took to get there is still obscured, Rod Carew’s .375 led Larry Smith’s Mimosa Mirth Makers to the league title in 1984. Bill Brunton’s Red Hill Rollers were the eventual TCBA kings.

    

Don Mahley’s Annandale Agates emerged on the scene for the first time

    

Twenty-game winners were Jack Morris (22), John Denny (22), Alan Bannister (20), and Rich Dotson (20).  

 

Fiehl Facts - February newsletter starts out: “Things are a little shaky in the American League, but the National League is as strong as ever.”

     May newsletter has the AL using the excuse for our tardiness as “our forms being late.”  Dave Brown chastises us, wondering why we just couldn’t mail him a postcard to report series results.

      September newsletter lists 29 unreported AL series versus only 4 for the NL, the main culprits being Winnebago and Rockford.  We’re in September and Rockford still hasn’t sent in Series 2 results yet.  C’mon, shouldn’t Dave Brown guess by now that he’s going to have to kiss this one good-bye!  Even Anthony is usually up to at least series 6 by this time!                                                                            

     Gilbert and Zarse spend the rest of the season playing in a Black Hole and are never seen or heard from again. 

     As you can tell, 1983 and 1984 were not good years for the AL   We were certainly the weak sister of the league, and betting on our future existence would have been a little daring at the time.

 

Bob Braun - Lamaar Hoyt wins 19 games for Scranton.

                 - Dave McKay coaches in the minors for Hyde Park.
