DAVENPORT, Iowa (MAY 22, 2013) – Families in the Quad Cities will have a unique way to celebrate Father's Day at Modern Woodmen Park on June 16, when the Quad Cities River Bandits host a pre-game catch in the outfield and their second annual Father's Day Cookout on the Sky Deck for the 5 p.m. Flat Screen Family Sunday game against the Burlington Bees.

The pre-game festivities kick off with catch in the outfield at 4 p.m. with the all-you-can-eat buffet on the Sky Deck to follow from 4:30-6:30 p.m. The fun-filled day will also feature giveaways and enter-to-win prizes for dad to take home.
