The current Veterans Memorial Stadium opened in April of 2002, and is the third facility that professional baseball in Cedar Rapids has called home. The stadium has seating for 5,300 fans, not including standing room only areas, and features 12 diamond suites and four picnic/group areas. A six story LED video scoreboard is the centerpiece of the stadium, and dominates the center field view. The 30 x 72 foot LED board provides live action, instant replays, player statistics and more.
PREMIER SEATS (light green on the map) are located in the first four rows behind both the Visitor's third base dugout and the Kernels first base dugout, and the first eight rows behind home plate. Premier seats are closest to the field, and are the stadium's most comfortable individual seats, complete with cup holders.
CLUB SEATS (blue on the map) are located behind the Premier seats, and afford a great location to watch the Kernels in action. Club seats are individual seats with a cup holder.
PLAZA SEATS (yellow on the map) extend from first base to just beyond the bullpen and begin at field level. Plaza seats are reserved seats with a back attached.
LAWN SEATS (dark green on the map) are located down the left-field line at the end of Section 118 and feature a grassy bank to sit. Fans with Lawn tickets may bring blankets to sit on, however, lawn chairs are not permitted.
CHILDREN 3 & UNDER are free into the stadium if they sit on a parent's lap. If they need their own seat, then they will need a ticket.

It's a 'perfect fit' since March of 2009, PG Cares has held field naming rights with the Cedar Rapids Kernels. The field at Veterans Memorial Stadium has since been named "PG Cares Field at Veterans Memorial Stadium".
At the press conference held in March of 2009, Kernels President Tom Barbee officially announced the partnership between PG Cares and the Kernels.
PG Cares' mission is to inspire, support, and promote a pathway to success for underserved and poverty-stricken children within America's most at-risk communities by using sports and other real-life examples to educate, provide guidance, and mentorship!
