The Quad Cities River Bandits’ charitable work has not gone unnoticed. On Thursday at Modern Woodmen Park, Ballpark Digest honored the team with its award for “Best Commitment to Charity.”

Two organizations have teamed up to help the Quad Cities recover from the flood. Genesis Health System and the Quad Cities River Bandits have raised $100,000 to give to local organizations that assist individuals, families, and businesses.

This week, the Quad Cities River Bandits announced solar panels have been placed on the roof of Modern Woodmen Park. It's the first municipally-owned building in Davenport that has a solar array on its rooftop.

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.

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.

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