River Bandits Finally Come Home
Three weeks after the season began, the Quad Cities River Bandits will finally get to play a game at home. Floodwater from the Mississippi River still surrounds Modern Woodmen Park in Davenport, but an elevated walkway has been built that will allow fans to cross the railroad tracks, and enter the ballpark.
Since the flood, and Midwest League season began, the River Bandits have had to play all their games away.
Beginning Friday night, the River Bandits will host Clinton for four games, including a doubleheader on Saturday - with games at noon and 5 pm, and an afternoon game on Sunday.
Saturday's afternoon game will be free as a thank you to local fans.
