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

Very cool looking stadium, and great update. Thanks Seth.

One of the best opening day rosters in years. Now go get 'em.

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.
