Davenport may spend nearly half a million dollars to restore just a part of its riverfront that was damaged by the long, long flood. Tuesday night, aldermen will discuss replacing the grass in LeClaire Park, between Modern Woodmen Park and the roller dam.

The weather is just about right for baseball again, and River Bandits will open their new season in the Midwest League on Thursday, April 3rd. Unfortunately, they won't play in Davenport, as the Mississippi River continues to surround Modern Woodmen Park.

With severe flooding expected in the coming weeks, Davenport has activated its flood plan. 

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. 

On Midwest Week, even though they didn't repeat as champions of the Midwest League, the Quad City River Bandits had a good season.
