About Sunday Afternoon: Quad Cities River Bandits, May 24, 2015

This season, when I’m on the road, I’ll be writing a short, on-the-spot blog post about each Minor League ballpark that I visit. Then, upon my return home, I will provide the everything-including-the-kitchen-sink blog coverage that you have come to know and, perhaps, even love. Let’s get to it, lest it get to us! 

May 24, 2015 — Modern Woodmen Field, home of the Quad Cities River Bandits (Class A affiliate of the Houston Astros)

Opponent: Peoria Chiefs, 1:15 p.m. start time

Culinary Creation: Pork Tenderloin Sandwich (bun obscured by oversized meat patty)


At Random: My first ride in a ballpark Ferris Wheel


Your Groundbreaking and Subversive Ballpark Joke of the Day: Postponed! In it’s place, enjoy this Vine video displaying the River Bandits’ myriad cap offerings.

It’s All Over: Well, this one never began. The ballgame was rained out.

085(Spoiler alert: I was able to make a bonus, top-secret return to Modern Woodmen Park the next day. Stay tuned next month for full coverage.)
