CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KWWL) — The Kernels have announced that staff will be laid-off due to the postponed season.
"The Cedar Rapids Kernels regrettingly announce that half of our front office staff was laid off today. This was a very difficult decision, but with the Kernels season postponed indefinitely, we had no choice. The majority of the organization’s revenues come from Kernels games and fans in the stands. With the potential of going 18 months between Kernels games, we must reduce all costs including payroll expense. I thank our staff for all of their efforts and dedication to the organization and hope to work with them again during the 2021 season."CEO Doug Nelson, Cedar Rapids Ball Club
