The Cedar Rapids Kernels are the Class 'A' ball club for the Anaheim Angels. They play their home games in CR at Veterans Memorial Stadium on the SW side of town. This is a great place to go on a hot summer's night and have some old-fashioned fun.

Minor league games are often more fun than major league games because there isn't quite the ego bruising going on. The food is good as well. There's a hot tub in the far outfield that if a ball lands in there, you can win prizes. And when "premiere seating" costs only $10, it's an inexpensive night out too and that's always fun.

Address: 950 Rockford Rd. SW., Cedar Rapids, IA 52404
Directions: Exit Interstate 380 at First Avenue and then head west to 15th St and turn left. The stadium will be on your left.
