Just two weeks after the 2018 season ended, the Quad Cities River Bandits have announced their schedule for 2019. Their 7th season as an affiliate of the Houston Astros will begin on April 4th with a home game against Burlington. 

The River Bandits call it a "balanced schedule," with 12 home games in April, 13 in May, 12 in June, 16 in July, 15 in August, and the final two home games in September. 34 of the team’s 70 games at Modern Woodmen Park are scheduled for Friday, Saturday or Sunday.   

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
