1st Half
Tie Games: Clinton at Waterloo (6/8, 2-2, 16 innings, rain)
Wisconsin Rapids at Quincy

Forfeited Game
Cedar Rapids d. Clinton, June 2. Clinton's manager, Frank Oceak, was ejected in the eighth after protesting the ejection of one of his players, but refused to leave the field. This caused a 41 minute delay which resulted in the Clinton forfeit. Clinton GM Fritz Colschen immediately appealed to the umpires and CR manager Ron Plaza "on behalf of the fans", so the game was actually played to conclusion, with Clinton the apparent victors by a 3-2 score. Cedar Rapids protested that result (of course), and MWL President Jim Doster gave the game back to the Cards on June 11.

2nd Half
Tie Games: Burlington at Fox Cities

Forfeited Game: Waterloo at Burlington 7/31, Burlington incorrectly thought it was a night game, and didn't arrive in time to play
