Former Cedar Rapids Kernels manager Ever Magallanes and former Cedar Rapids Kernels players now with Rancho Cucamonga in the California League have made a video of support for the people of Cedar Rapids as we go through this horrible flooding event. You can access the video at mms:// or via Stephen Smith’s Los Angeles Angels minor-league website

Also received a voice mail from former Kernels manager Bobby Magallanes (Ever’s brother), who wanted everyone in the community to know that he is sending his thoughts and prayers to our community.

The Kernels’ eight-game homestand that begins Thursday is on. The club got the blessings of City Manager Jim Prosser and Mayor Kay Halloran on Tuesday to play the games, which stretch through June 26. That also goes for the kids’ camps that run Thursday, Friday and Saturday at Memorial Stadium.

The club also has teamed with the Freedom From Hunger Food Drive. Fans are asked to donate non-perishable food items when they come to games during the homestand that will be distributed through local food pantries to aid in flood relief efforts.

In a personal note, God bless everyone affected by these floods. We will overcome this!!
