Cedar Rapids Kernels want to buy Waterloo Bucks

Posted: Updated:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

The Cedar Rapids Ball Club, Inc., better known as the Cedar Rapids Kernels, has announced they have entered discussions to purchase the Waterloo Bucks of the Northwoods League.

The purchase is subject to the approval of the Northwoods League and obtaining a lease for Riverfront Stadium from the City of Waterloo.

The transaction is being reviewed by the Office of the Commissioner of Major League Baseball, having already been approved by the Midwest League and the President of Minor League Baseball.

“Waterloo has a strong baseball tradition dating back to 1904. We are looking to continue that tradition for a long time,” said Cedar Rapids Ball Club’s president, Gary Keoppel.

Under the agreement, the Waterloo Bucks would remain in Waterloo and continue to play at Riverfront Stadium with Dan Corbin as the Bucks’ General Manager.

The Bucks have been owned by Steve and John Marso of Minnesota since 2002.
