Cedar Rapids, IA - For the first time in it's 17-year history, the Kernels Hot Stove Banquet featuring the Minnesota Twins Winter Caravan is a sellout. The Kernels are now offering a 'Standing Room' ticket for $15, which gives fans a seat in the banquet room, access to the silent auction, Hall of Fame inductions, Twins Winter Caravan and autograph session, but does not include a meal.

The 17th Annual Hot Stove Banquet will include a silent auction featuring sports memorabilia and local items, the first Cedar Rapids appearance of the Minnesota Twins Winter Caravan as well as the induction of the Class of 2013 into the Cedar Rapids Baseball Hall of Fame. This year's Hall of Fame Class includes Alex Monchak, Pat Harmon, Casey Kotchman, Trevor Hoffman and Jim Curran.

Proceeds from this event help the Kernels Foundation accomplish its vision of ensuring that all youth in Eastern Iowa have the opportunity to experience the thrills and life-enhancing lessons that come from engaging in athletics and recreational activities.

Standing Room tickets for the Hot Stove Banquet are $15. Tickets can be purchased at Perfect Game Field at Veterans Memorial Stadium during regular business hours 9 AM to 5 PM, on-line at, or by calling Brandon Clemens at (319) 896-7617.
