Where they played last season

This summary is based on the team's opening day roster and will not be revised to reflect roster changes.

The 2007 Kernels are based on last summer's Orem team, with several CR holdovers and some help from the AZL Angels. These are players with some potential to put up good numbers.

Team             League           W/L    Place    Hitters Pitchers
                                        (Teams)
