  • Modern Woodman Park
    • Home of the Quad Cities River Bandits plus the best minor league ballparks in America! If you’re up to it the River Bandits have games seasonally of course but are always super fun to go to. Every year St. Ambrose offer free tickets during welcome week for the first 200 students who claim their ticket. The stadium looks over the Mississippi river and has a Ferris wheel. Fun fact- if a player hits their ball into the corn a cow moo will sound.
