Photos from the trip

I said early on during last week's venture into the Midwest League that we had photos but no easy way to get them from the camera to the blog.

Well, that is now rectified. Here's a small sampling. All photos, by the way, were taken by my wife, the wonderous Linda Vanderwerf.

Miguel Sano takes a rip at a pitch on Thursday.

Eddie Rosario fouls one off.

Matt Summers delivers.
Corey Williams works, with Sano in the
background at third base.

The scouts were easy to identify, and pretty plentiful,
at the sparsely attended games in Beloit.

Art Pennington, a former Negro Leaguer
 who played for about a decade in the
integrated minors before settling in
Cedar Rapids after his playing days ended
 threw out a first pitch Friday in honor of his
89th birthday.
Cam Bedrosian, son of former Twins pitcher and former
NL Cy Young winner Steve Bedrosian, started Friday
for the Cedar Rapids Kernels.
The Kernels, attired in their one-game special "Star Wars"
jerseys, begin their pre-game stretching Saturday.
The Star Wars jerseys were auctioned off during the game
for Make-A-Wish. Here Chevy Clarke signs some autographs
for the fan who won his jersey after the game.

After the game, fireworks. Most of the Kernels returned
to the field (or never left) to see the show.
