Bucks Plan To Play Weekend Home Games Despite Flooding (Gallery)
Flood water from the rising Cedar River has closed Park Road in Waterloo, cutting off the only direct access to Riverfront Stadium. Despite the high water, the Waterloo Bucks are planning to play their weekend baseball games at home as scheduled.
Fans who are planning to attend games tonight (Saturday, June 21, 2014) and Sunday afternoon are encouraged to park on or around Conger Street and walk into the stadium.
The Bucks face the Duluth Huskies at 7:05 this evening, with gates opening at 5:30 p.m. Sunday’s home game against the St. Cloud Rox begins at 3:35 p.m. with gates opening at 2:30 p.m.
The Cedar River is expected to crest at 1 p.m. on Sunday at 15.8 feet. Right now, flood water is covering the intersection of Park Road and Burton Avenue, blocking vehicle access to Riverfront Stadium. However, the field and stadium are currently not in danger of flooding.
All promotions for tonight’s game against Duluth are still scheduled, including a post-game fireworks display.
The Bucks are currently on a seven-game winning streak, following Friday night’s 10-0 victory over the Huskies.
