With snow falling yesterday and today in some parts of the Midwest, this seems like a good time for the next installment of “Snowbound stadiums of the Midwest League.” So far I’ve posted photos of snowbound stadiums in Burlington, Fort Wayne, South Bend, Kane County and Cedar Rapids.
The photo at the top of this post is courtesy of the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers. The team’s radio announcer, Chris Mehring, took hourly photos of Fox Cities Stadium during the Jan. 12 snowstorm in Appleton. If you like that picture, I suggest you check out the rest of them here on Mehring’s blog, Rattler Radio.
The next photo is from the same day in the Quad Cities. The River Bandits emailed me a couple cool shots of Modern Woodmen Park’s snowbound interior, and I particularly like this one because it includes the Centennial Bridge.
Finally, here is a photo of the concessions area behind sections C and D inside Pohlman Field, home of the Beloit Snappers. I took this shot on Jan. 28 on my way home from making a presentation about the Midwest League ballparks at a SABR Day meeting in Kenosha.
If you have a photo of a snowbound Midwest League ballpark that you want to share, feel free to email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
