The Quad City River Bandits are looking forward to the second half of the Midwest League baseball season. The Bandits clinched a spot in the post season playoffs by finishing second in the Western Division’s first half race, despite not having a home field since floodwaters invaded John O’Donnell Stadium in mid-April. River Bandits manager Jeff Carter, who says while a baseball season is a grind, that’s especially true for a team that does not have a home field. But, he says they’ve focused in on the job at hand. He says it’s tough to not be able to practice at the field whenever you want.Carter says while the goal at the class A level is to develop players, winning is a big part of that. He says if you win, you’re “doing the game the right way.”The River Bandits hope to return to John O’Donnell Stadium on July 2nd.
