This won’t change our plan to see Cedar Rapids in Clinton, and there is still a plethora of talent on the two squads that we can’t wait to see. But the timing of this is just painful.

Born and raised in the motherland, Kepler is a crazy athlete who has a chance to be the first German born outfielder to make the major leagues. The LumberKings boast Gaby Guerrero, Vlad’s just-as-free-swinging nephew. After the game, we will drive an hour north towards our next destination: The Field Of Dreams. […]
