The River Bandits will offer $1 beers and $1 pops, as well as $1 hot dogs, peanuts, popcorn and nachos for the Sept. 4 playoff game as part of the continuing celebration of the Bandits' successful season and the Quad Cities' own Modern Woodmen Park being recently voted No. 1 in the USA Today/ Readers' Choice Best Minor League Ballparks. The River Bandits will also give away a used pick-up truck during the game.


“We wanted to make this season’s playoff game a truly special event for the people of the Quad Cities,” said River Bandits co-owner Dave Heller. “So we thought we’d celebrate our ranking as the nation’s number one ballpark by having one dollar food and drink specials, discounting all tickets and, best of all, giving away a really great pickup truck!”


River Bandits season-ticket holders for 2013 may purchase playoff tickets in advance of the general public sale during a special pre-sale window that lasts until noon Tuesday at the River Bandits box office or by calling 563-324-3000.

ABOUT THE BANDITS: The River Bandits ownership is making one of the biggest improvements to Modern Woodmen Park since the ballpark was first built back in 1931! A new Ferris wheel, standing 112 feet over the playing field, is planned for next spring, along with a carousel and other new games and attractions. This season, the team just unveiled a new 300-foot long dual zip line, a rock climbing wall, a Mediacom Frog Hopper, and a number of new bounce houses. The team also boasts a new major league affiliate, the Houston Astros, and fans can see the first team in Minor League Baseball history with back-to-back No. 1 overall draft picks – 2012 top pick Carlos Correa and 2013 top pick Mark Appel, as well as 2012 first-round draft choice Lance McCullers.
