Omaha Storm Chasers - Ballpark Preview
If you are looking to take a baseball road trip to see the future boys in blue, the team at Royal Revival wants you to be prepared. Nicholas Ian Allen, formerly the Assistant General Manager of the Helena Brewers, offers insight, tips and tricks to make the most out of your experience when visiting a Minor League ballpark.

 Ticket Information:

  •  $17 Club Box
  • $13 Field Box
  • $9 Box
  • $9 Home Run Porch
  • $7 Berm
  • $1 Discount for children ages 3-10, seniors 60+ , or with valid military ID. Kids 2 and under are free. 
Parking: In Omaha, there are two free parking lots for fans, but if you would like to park a little closer to the park, you will need to pay $3. There is also a VIP parking lot for $5.

For the Kids: 
  • The Storm Chasers offer a pretty unique promotion with the help of a local sponsor. The first 50 kids each night are eligible to receive a berm ticket for just $1.
  • Section 125 of Werner Park is considered a Family Section, with no alcohol allowed.
  • Like most Kid’s Clubs, the Lil Chasers program is a no-brainer. For $25 per child (10 and under), kids receive free admission on Sundays and Wednesdays, plus a bunch of other free stuff. Parents that like to take their young ones to a lot of games can actually save money through ticket price savings alone. 
Best Bets:
  • Minor League Baseball really isn’t about who wins and loses (at least for most fans), but the Storm Chasers are the defending Triple-A National Champions and bring back a lot of familiar players this season.
  • Fireworks promotions often bring the biggest crowds, and the Storm Chasers offer fireworks following every Friday home game.
  • The Chasers don't have as many kooky and quirky promotional nights as some other teams, but they will host Star Wars Weekend Friday May 2-Sunday May 4, as well as a selection of promotional giveaway nights including a championship flag giveaway (4/5), Chris Dwyer bobble head (4/19) and t-shirt giveaway (7/17).
  • Concessions are where most Minor League teams really make their money (that super-sized soda you bought for $4.50 likely costs the club around $0.09 – including the souvenir cup). Therefore, fans should really take advantage of nights that offer food and/or drink discounts. The Chasers have a pretty good selection, including ½ price food on April 7, ½ price burgers on April 9, and $0.01 hot dogs on April 16. Like most clubs, you can also get big discounts on beer and soda on Thursdays.
