Despite Mother Nature's best efforts to stall, Spring is indeed here. With the big league season getting underway, so are the boys of summer. Our local favorites, the Cedar Rapids Kernels are set to open their season this week as well.

The Kernels play their first home game of the year this Saturday night, April 8 at 5 p.m. against Beloit, and KDAT has your tickets.

It's big league fun on a tight budget. In this case, try NO budget, because it could be FREE. We are giving away some 4-packs of tickets to that home opener and though it's a few days away, as of now, the forecast looks perfectly Spring-like with a partly cloudy sky, dry and in the 60s on Saturday. You can enter to win HERE. Good luck and happy Spring from 104-5 KDAT.
