Apollo Elementary School students, parents and teachers recently enjoyed a Quad City River Bandits' game compliments of the Bandits' Book Buddies reading program. Students advanced to first, second, and third bases by attaining their reading goals. Upon reaching their home base goal, a free ticket to a game was awarded.

Before the start of the April 18 game, everyone was part of a parade around the outfield of Modern Woodman Park. It was a beautiful weather day and all students and their families had a great time. The Bandits even won the game 4-3.
