River Bandits Cancel Weekend Series
The 2019 Quad Cities flooding has caused havoc to the River Bandits season. As of May 8th the team has played only 3 of their 30 games at Modern Woodmen Park. Despite 27 road games, the QC9 sit atop the Midwest League standings at 20-10.
Every game on the schedule to this point has been moved or will be made up. Until now. Due to unplayable conditions at Modern Woodmen Park the May 9-11 series between the Great Lakes Loons and Quad Cities River Bandits has been cancelled. Since the Clubs do not meet again in the first half of the Midwest League season the games will not be made up.
Fans who hold tickets to those games should contact the River Bandits to determine how those tickets may be used for future games.
President Nussbaum remarked: “Despite heroic efforts by the City of Davenport we cannot play the games scheduled for Thursday, May 9 through Saturday, May 11. It is amazing how Modern Woodmen Park has been protected from the unprecedented flood waters, but it is simply not safe or practical for the teams, River Bandits Staff, and most importantly our fans to access the Stadium. It is our sincere hope and prayer Mother Nature will cooperate and the River Bandits will be able to play at home against the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers Friday May 24, 2019.”
You can hear the River Bandits on KBOB 1170 AM.
