The top players in the Midwest League are in Cedar Rapids for tonight’s All Star Game. Kernels’ General Manager Scott Wilson says the annual game always feature some of the future stars of Major League Baseball.
Angels outfielder Mike Trout played in this game in 2010 as did St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams.
“We always look at this game and say there are a third of the guys in the locker room that are going to make it out of this and you can’t say that everyday”, said Cedar Rapids General Manager Scott Wilson. “These are the best of the best coming in you will find that a good portion of these guys will get promoted in the next month.”
There is an autograph session this afternoon at Veterans Memorial Stadium and a Home Run Derby before the All Star Game begins.
