Cedar Rapids Kernels gear up for 2012 season


The beautiful weather might have you thinking baseball!  To gear up for the season, the Cedar Rapids Kernels invited fans to Veterans Memorial Stadium Sunday for the 5th annual "Spring Fling". Visitors got a chance to tour the stadium, check out the brand new party plaza, and meet team mascot Mr. Shucks.  And the team has a lot planned for this summer.

"There's almost not a night at the ballpark this year that we don't have something going on.  It's either a benefit for a Cedar Rapids cause or one way, shape or form, complete entertainment.  We can't control what goes on down on the field but we guarantee a great time with the Kernels at the party at the park," said Scott Wilson, Kernels assistant general manager.

The recent mild weather has put stadium staff ahead of schedule in preparing the field for the upcoming season.  Players report for training in just two weeks.
