Class A–affiliates of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, the Cedar Rapids Kernels field a roster of tomorrow's major leaguers on the fields of today. Led by manager Brent Del Chiaro and coaches Mike Eylward and Trevor Wilson, the band of savvy sluggers is set to continue its tradition of charitable efforts by donating baseball after baseball to needy attendees in the stands. As Midwest League champions in 1988, 1992, and 1994, the Kernels are hungry for this year's title and will stop at nothing—the Kane County Cougars included—to wrest it from the well-oiled gloves of wannabe winners.
Every Cedar Rapids Kernels home game takes place in Veterans Memorial Stadium, featuring 5,300 seats and a six-story LED scoreboard. Watch in amazement from club seats as Mr. Shucks, the Kernels' husky mascot, repeatedly pratfalls into pots of boiling water and bowls of melted butter.
