    Good stuff! The bridge back drop is incredible. Would love to see that ballpark. Good win for Beloit as well.

    Cool! I have seen the ball park as I've crossed that bridge many times. My parents live in the quad cities area. Why have I never gone to a game there?!

    The one time I ever attended a game there, probably 20 years ago, water was indeed an issue, after some recent flooding of the river. Loved the bridge as a backdrop.

    I was at the game Friday, as well (across from the field from you, behind the Beloit dugout). It was my first time at their ballpark, though I have no idea why it's taken me so long to get there, since it's only about an 80 minute drive for me. Maybe because I can watch MWL games in Cedar Rapids. But I enjoyed seeing the Snappers again and look forward to their trip to CR later this month.

    I used to go there when the Twins had Mauer-Kubel and the Real Deal down there. Place was a dump with a great view. They redid the park a few years ago and now it is my Favorite stop in the League. Great to sit there on a summer night with the Bridge lite up the river traffic sliding by. Have not gone this year, what is wrong with me.
