The Cedar Rapids Kernels are getting ready to meet and honor their 2 millionth fan.
As of June 16, the number of fans through the gates at Perfect Game Field at Veterans Memorial Stadium has reached 1,944,577 since their opening in 2002.
The Kernels expect fan number 2,000,000 through the gates during the next home stand, which begins on June 25 against the Burlington Bees.
Based on attendance, the Kernels say the lucky fan will most likely walk through the gates on Wednesday or Thursday

The package includes $1,500 cash, one night in a Kernels Diamond Suite, four Praise in the Park concert tickets, two Minnesota Twins Tickets, four MMA Tickets for the Saturday, August 10 bout, Kernels merchandise, a 2013 team-autographed ball and gift certificates to various restaurants.
