Homestand Preview: May 15-17

Your Cedar Rapids Kernels return to Perfect Game Field at Veterans Memorial Stadium and open a four-game, three-day home stand against Peoria. Here's a preview of what you can expect these next four games:

 

May 15-17 vs. Peoria

 

The Kernels host the Peoria Chiefs, the Midwest League affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals, in a four-game, three-day homestand starting Monday, May 15th.

The home stand kicks off on Monday, May 15th with a doubleheader vs. Peoria starting at 5:30 PM consisting of two, 7-inning games with a 30-minute break between games. The DH was necessitated by the Kernels being rained out at Peoria on April 30th and since the two teams don't play in Peoria during the first half of the MWL season, the game will be made up here in Cedar Rapids. It's a Mark Down Monday where regular hot dogs are $1.50 and small popcorn, ice cream sandwiches and chips are $1 each. Your game ticket is good for both games of the DH and gates open at 4:30 PM.
