The Field of Dreams Chapter had 14 members and guests gather in Suite 18 at
Modern Woodmen Park in Davenport for a chapter ballgame outing.

Steve Elsberry kicked us off with a presentation to remind us that his San
Francisco Giants have won 2 out of the last 3 World Series. Steve outlined how
often the feat of winning the Series at least two out of three years has
occurred. Turns out, it's fairly common, with 17 instances over the years. Steve
also listed the streaks of five or more years with different World
Series Champions.

The chapter also hosted a special guest. Frank Wulf, the widower of Dorothy
Wulf, whose photos provided much of the basis for Tim Rask's book "Baseball at
Davenport's John O'Donnell Stadium
" took a break from his usual seat to join us
in the suite.

In the game, the home town River Bandits lost to the Beloit Brewers, 3-2.

If the details can be worked out, we hope to make our first chapter trip to Sioux City in mid-August.
