The first All-Star to emerge from Carson Park was Andy Pafko. Pafko would play for Eau Claire Bears during the awful 1940 season in which they finished with a 42-70 record. Pafko himself wasn't much help as he hit only .209 on the season. Pafko would however go on to have a fine (and quite long) Major League career spending 17 years in the Major Leagues and making the All Star Game 4 times. In 1948, Pafko would hit 30 doubles, 26 homers and bat .312 with 101 RBI for the Chicago Cubs, and go on to play in 4 separate World Series appearances (1945, 1952, 1957, 1958).
