Though this may not be baseball's time of year,
The River Bandits are filled with holiday cheer.
After a season when we reached fans far and near,
We have just a few small requests for your generous ear!
We appreciate all of last year's presents and additions,
You helped filled our ballpark with such pleasant conditions.
But our wonderful Corn Field would be yet more on the mark
If the magic of Field of Dreams reached Modern Woodmen Park!
It seems for a season it has been on the verge,
Please let Kinsella, Graham, and Shoeless Joe emerge!
The magical team hits the field and takes flight,
Opposed by our River Bandits to the fans' delight!
But if the magical Corn Field is too much of a creation,
Perhaps Jimmy Buffet could try Iowa for vacation?
Sailing the Mississippi under the stars,
Surely he'd be attracted to our three Tiki Bars.
He'd enjoy a drink in the lounge or a nap on the bed,
Before his free post-game concert… Hear that Parrot Heads?
But if it is already too late to hear 5 o'clock chime,
Could we find Eddie Murphy arriving on time?
To the James Brown Hot Tub Revival you see,
I can already picture our next ad on TV!
It was such a great year, now we look towards next season,
Fans can't wait to return, for many a reason!
So at this holiday time we humbly request,
One of these gift ideas that may sound like a jest.
But if good ole' Saint Nick is too busy this year,
We'll move forward unphased, without even a tear.
We're at home in the Quad Cities with the River Bandits back,
Hear the thud of the mitt, and the bat going "crack!"
Come one family, come all to Modern Woodmen Park,
Where fun always comes first, in the sunshine or dark!
