the Quad Cities,” said Bandits owner Dave Heller. “Now that we’ve moved up a level, this will be

the highest quality baseball ever played in the Quad Cities and we’ll be doing it as an affiliate of

the Kansas City Royals, who are widely recognized as having one of the top farm systems in all of

baseball. It will have been 20 months since our last game and it’s way past time for River Bandits

baseball. I can’t wait to welcome everyone back to Modern Woodmen Park for the first pitch.”
