Building a stadium right by a river can certainly make the ballpark experience more enjoyable, but it can also lead to a logistics nightmare when rain leads to flooding.

The Quad City River Bandits (the Houston Astros' Single-A affiliate) play their home games at Modern Woodmen Park in Davenport, Iowa. The stadium just happened to be built right by the Mississippi River.

Recent flooding near the stadium has produced an incredible image.

On a nice summer evening, the river backdrop can make for a great night at the ballpark.

However, when there is flooding, the ballpark gets swallowed up.

The team isn't letting a little water ruin the fun. It found a way to make sure fans could get to the game.

The River Bandits' next home game is scheduled for July 4.
