River Bandits Will Play at the Field of Dreams
This summer, the Quad Cities River Bandits will play at the Field of Dreams ballpark near Dyersville. With the Cedar Rapids Kernels, they'll be the first minor league teams to play at the famous movie site in eastern Iowa, on August 9th.
And similar to last year's major league game between the Yankees and White Sox, they'll wear "throw-back jerseys." The River Bandits will become the Davenport Blue Sox, their name during several seasons in the early 1900's. The Kernels will become the Cedar Rapids Bunnies - their name from 1904 to 1932.
Ticket information will be available at a later date.
Two days after their game, the Chicago Cubs will play the Cincinnati Reds in the second major league game at the Field of Dreams.
