Rainy day for LCBA @ the Kernels

The LCBA’s day at the ballpark for a June 1 noon game between the Cedar Rapids Kernels and Peoria Chiefs did not go as planned.  Intermittent rain showers resulted in a delayed game start time of 3:45, which was after the majority of the 15 or so LCBA members who hardily showed up earlier for the game had left. However, about that same number of members made it out to the ballpark to enjoy what ended up being a sunny, late day game.

The LCBA Board will discuss whether to try another LCBA-Day-At-The-Ballpark for a noon game later this summer.  Please contact your LCBA Board at webmaster@linncobar.org if you have any thoughts on this matter.
