Do y'all know who Mr. Shucks is? He is the mascot for the Cedar Rapids Kernels. He is supposed to be a baseball headed creature with shucks of corn surrounding his head. To further add to the effect he in full costume in real life is about 6 plus feet tall. This is usually horrifying for kids but for some reason my kids are entranced with him and finally want to get to give him high fives and such.
Now I may be biased since I come from a heavy baseball home, but we think the Kernels is great cheap fun for your family. It is a great stadium and it is safe and kid friendly. I would recommend checking them out every summer!
