    CEDAR RAPIDS -- Former Washington All-Stater Chad Christensen is the first local player to play for the Kernels since 2003.

    The team flew into Cedar Rapids today and unpacked their gear. They will begin their season Thursday against Clinton.

    "I've played maybe 10 or 15 games on this field," Christensen said.

    "Chad's going to really help us," manager Jake Mauer said. "He can play multiple positions, I wouldn't be afraid to put him anywhere in the infield or the corner outfield. He's a guy that has some experience."
