The sale of the Waterloo Bucks of the Northwoods League to the Cedar Rapids Ball Club, Inc. (Cedar Rapids Kernels) is official.
Cedar Rapids Ball Club, Inc. President Gary Keoppel, Kernels General Manager Doug Nelson and Waterloo Bucks General Manager Dan Corbin were on hand for the official signing Monday.
"Waterloo has a tremendous baseball history, the team receives excellent support from the community and is close enough to Cedar Rapids to share resources," said Keoppel.
"The Waterloo Bucks will remain in Waterloo and continue to play at Riverfront Stadium in the Northwoods League," said Nelson. "Dan Corbin has built an excellent front office team, our plan is not to mess with a winning formula."
"For years the Waterloo Bucks have provided the people of the Cedar Valley with wholesome, family entertainment and we feel this will only be strengthened with the addition of the resources we are able to share with the Kernels," said Corbin.
During the next several months a detailed plan will be developed for the 2015 season. It's anticipated that the team will become more active in the community, make improvements to Riverfront Stadium and enhance the promotions during the games to create an even more enjoyable fan experience for the people of the Cedar Valley.
