The Harvester – Harvesting News for Alumni Reports

bradenbell-thumb-450x253-2681381b.jpgThe Harvester – Harvesting the News for Kernels Alumni Reports


feature is a daily report sharing the links and news of Kernels
Alumni. Previously, we updated these throughout the day on Facebook as
they happened. I will be posting each morning to try and keep the links
as relevant and fresh as I can. If something comes across during the
day, it likely will sneak into another post. The Kernels defeated Kane County 5-4 in yesterday’s noon game to finish off a three game sweep. We head to Quad Cities tonight to start the road trip. Without
delay, your Harvester Links for 4/28/11:
