Modern Woodmen Park
From BR Bullpen
(also known as Municipal Stadium, 1931-1971)
Modern Woodmen Park in Davenport, Iowa is the current home of the Quad Cities River Bandits and has hosted Midwest League baseball since 1960. Located along the Mississippi River, the park opened in 1931 and was originally known as Municipal Stadium. In 1971, the stadium was renamed John O'Donnell Stadium in honor of local newspaper sportswriter John O'Donnell. After the 2007 season, the naming rights were sold and the park was re-christened Modern Woodmen Park.
The ballpark was the subject of a book. In 2004, baseball Historian Tim Rask wrote Baseball at Davenport's John O'Donnell Stadium, released in 2004.
