Welcome to Bandits Banter!

Welcome to Bandits Banter, the new blog for the Quad Cities River Bandits!


I’ll be your blog host, Ben Chiswick. For those of you who aren’t already loyal listeners on WYEC 93.9 FM, I am the River Bandits’ play-by-play broadcaster on the radio. I also do a number of other things for the team, including involvement with our website (www.RiverBandits.com) and the Play Ball publications that you can pick up at the ballpark at every game.


Now, I am also you’re resident blogger! I’ll be popping in to bring you River Bandits updates about everything related to the team. If you have any particular questions that you would like answered, feel free to email me at BenC@RiverBandits.com and I am happy to respond on my next entry.

Last night, we were dominated by a Diamondbacks lefty named Wade Miley, who threw five perfect innings before being pulled because of an innings limit!
