Game Day Theme

On March 17, the team will be wearing special John Deere green jerseys that are sure to please all of their loyal fans. After the game, these jerseys will be auctioned off, with all proceeds benefiting River Bend Food Bank.

“We are so excited to have the opportunity to raise money and awareness for the River Bend Food Bank on our season-opening game," Steamwheelers owner Doug Bland said. “The green Deere jerseys are a very cool element of the opener, with the amount of John Deere collectors in the world I have a feeling these jerseys are going to bring some high bids which will benefit an amazing organization in the River Bend Food Bank."


Not only will March 17th be John Deere night, allowing Deere employees free admission, but it's also a $2 Beer night. This will no doubt be an entertaining and wallet-friendly event that all of the Quad Cities can look forward to.

Deckmate Dancers

The Quad City Deckmate Dancers cannot wait to hit the field on Friday with high hopes and fancy footwork ready to wow the crowd with their routines.
