Various amounts of snow have been falling throughout the Midwest today, setting the stage for this new edition of “Snowbound stadiums of the Midwest League.”

The photo at the top of this post is of Modern Woodmen Park, home of the Quad Cities River Bandits, at noon today. The next photo is of Perfect Game Field inside Veterans Memorial Stadium, home of the Cedar Rapids Kernels.

The view hasĀ improvedĀ since yesterday, when fog completely obscured the stadium from the same vantage point.

The same view of Fox Cities Stadium yesterday wasn't any view at all.

  1. Kind of depressing, seeing the ballparks like this. The Whitecaps posted a pic of Fifth Third Ballpark, and you could barely make out that there was a field there due to the fog/rain/snow/wind…brutal. Here’s to sunny skies in April and May!!!

  2. I like seeing the snowbound parks. I know what you’re saying about depressing, but I think it’s fun to think of how nice everything will look in just a couple more months.
    Thanks for sharing, Craig! I always look forward to your snowbound park posts.

    Really like the snow-covered Pohlman seats. Personally I like snowbound stadiums–consider ‘em a promise of better times coming.
