The Cedar Rapids Kernels Baseball team is hosting “Washington Day” at the ballpark this weekend. Josh Riffel, Program Director at the Washington Y says there are free tickets to this weekend’s game against the Peoria Chiefs. He says there are other opportunities for the children to participate such as throwing out the first pitch or taking part in the broadcast booth.
Riffel says parents need to sign up at the Y for children to take part in the other events. To learn more about this weekend’s Kernels Day, listen to today’s In Touch With Southeast Iowa program during the midday magazine.
