About Wednesday Night: Cedar Rapids Kernels, May 27, 2015

This season, when I’m on the road, I’ll be writing a short, on-the-spot blog post about each Minor League ballpark that I visit. Then, upon my return home, I’ll provide the multifaceted blog coverage that you have come to know and, perhaps, even love. Let’s get to it, lest it get to us! 

May 27, 2015: Veterans Memorial Stadium, home of the Cedar Rapids Kernels (Class A affiliate of the Minnesota Twins)

Opponent: Wisconsin Timber Rattlers, 6:35 p.m. game time

I watched a game there last year and it was great. I wish I was doing what you were doing but Taiwan is a long way away from MiLB ball. I am planning on kicking off a 4 stadium tour in Taiwan and hopefully make a trip to Japan every year and knock out another stadium or two there.

Cedar Rapids had the best baseball atmosphere of any park we visited in Iowa. We had a lot of fun there, and got to meet Trout when he played for the Kernels in 2010.
