CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – The Cedar Rapids Kernels on Friday announced the signing of a 10-year Player Development License with Major League Baseball that will allow the team to continue as a Minnesota Twins affiliate.

“We have been engaged with Major League Baseball and the Minnesota Twins to forge a relationship that preserves the history and tradition of the minor leagues,” Kernels President Greg Churchill said. “We can’t wait for the 2021 season to start and look forward to a successful partnership with the Minnesota Twins for years to come.”

Commissioner of Baseball Robert D. Manfred Jr. said the new model provides a pipeline to the Majors for players and continues the Minor leagues’ tradition of entertaining millions of families in hundreds of communities.
