Photo: Minor league stadium nearly flooded

If you are trying to get inside Modern Woodmen Park in Davenport, Iowa, which is home to the Quad City River Bandits (Single-A affiliate of the Houston Astros, you might need a boat and a life jacket.

Check out this amazing aerial photo taken of the stadium which shows the ballpark surrounded by flooding. It's not uncommon to see the waters of the mighty Mississippi River skirting close to the borders of the stadium. But not this close.

As fate would have it, the River Bandits are scheduled to play a home game on Friday, which doesn't seem likely to happen when looking at this photo. But the team has already announced that they plan to play baseball as normal this weekend. So there's that.
