Baseball is back! The Cedar Rapids Kernels opened up their 2016 season at Veterans Memorial Stadium on Thursday night (4/7).  Admittedly, it wasn't ideal baseball weather, but the Kernels managed to defeat the Quad Cities River Bandits, 12-4.

The Kernels are coming off of a fantastic 2015 season where they came up just short of the Midwest League championship. Games at Veterans Memorial Stadium are always entertaining... great food, promotions, fireworks and much more!  Get your tickets now by clicking here.

To add to the excitement of the new season, the Kernels will host the Midwest League All-Star Game on Tuesday, June 21st!
