Hawks Won't Nest in New Stadium This Year

When it comes to the RiverHawks new field of Dreams. That Dream is no longer alive for 2005.

Loves Park Mayor Dave Lindberg said today that there will be no baseball at the teams new ballpark this season. This after a second scheduled opening for the ballpark was not met. Skandia Construction is the general contractor for the project. They site a late spring start, compactibility of the soil..inability to get electricity to the site and problems with the concrete of the seating bowl as some of the reasons why they were not able to meet their projected dates for opening. And Lindberg says they won't play ball until the park is complete.
