Thoughts and Prayers for Cedar Rapids

After a rainout due to bad weather in Beloit, Wisconsin, we traveled to Kane County (Geneva, IL).  We won tonight 2-0 behind quality pitching and strong defense.  I had the start tonight, although I only lasted two innings after being knocked out on a play at the plate.  Discussing plays at the plate might be a future post. 

Due to the recent flooding events in Cedar Rapids, I understand that baseball is far from the minds of everyone in the ravished area.  On behalf of the Kernels’ players, coaches, and staff, as well as the entire Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim organization, I want Cedar Rapids to know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.  We understand that baseball is merely a livelihood, and that there are more pressing issues going on at this time.  So, I ask everyone to keep Cedar Rapids in your thoughts and prayers, and we, although not permanent residents, are pained by the flooding events.
