Summer has officially just arrived but the midway point of the Minor League Baseball season is already here.

The 2016 Midwest League All Star Game will be held tonight at Veterans Memorial Stadium, and the Kernels organization is ready. Believe me, they know how to host a spectacular show. A ballgame is always a great time, but the All Star Game is special.

Gates for the 2016 All-Star Game open at 5:00 p.m. tonight.  The Home Run Derby, always a fan favorite, will take place at 5:30 p.m. The All Star Game starts at 7:05 p.m.

Tickets are still available at (319) 896-7560 or online at

The Cedar Rapids Kernels are a Class A affiliate of the Minnesota Twins
