In recent years, Modern Woodmen Park has rapidly transformed into a versatile venue for hundreds of events year-round, and the ballpark will soon open another unique space for groups and businesses in the Quad Cities community. The Quad Cities River Bandits will host a ribbon-cutting at 11 a.m. Thursday, March 14, to unveil the newly renovated Bandits Business Center powered by Bradfield's.

Freshly painted with new carpet, all-new office furniture, and a built-in SMART Board with a microphone and speakers, the Bandits Business Center powered by Bradfield's is a premier environment for hosting presentations, training seminars, and meetings. Located on the first floor adjacent to the lobby at Modern Woodmen Park, the space will be available for businesses and organizations to rent and use year-round on both game days and non-game days.
