3 Reasons You Should Go to a Storm Game


Okay, look under normal circumstances if you asked me to take my whole munchkin crew and make them sit for H.O.U.R.S. at a baseball game I would laugh in your face and think you were joking. Don’t get me wrong. I used to love a good baseball game with a delicious hot dog in one hand and a cold beer in the other surrounded by good friends and laughter… BUT with the munchkins its a whole other story. My kids attention span in this crazy iPad/ video game paced world is about 5 seconds… don’t laugh… I’m NOT kidding.

So, you bet your bottom dollar I was giddy as all get out when we attended a baseball game WITH the munchkins AND had a good time.

So, here are my Top 3 Reasons Why YOU should Go to a Storm Baseball Game:

1) Family Friendly

Storm Games are a great choice for families from the cleanliness of the stadium and cheap ticket prices to their dedicated Kids Zone complete with inflatable jumpers for the kids. Plus, on top of that they have nights specifically geared towards families. For example every Friday night you can sit back and enjoy the “Best Fireworks Display in the Inland Empire” after the game. Or enjoy their Sunday Funday which consists of kids taking over the Diamond where they announce the game and can race Thunder across the field. Plus, there are plenty of antics between innings to keep the kiddos entertained including a bunch of mascot characters… my munchkins get a kick out of the race the squirrel bit they do!!

2) Thunder

Speaking of mascot characters I have to say as annoying as Thunder may be to us adults he definitely is a HUGE HIT with the munchkins. He is super energetic and he really interacts with the entire stadium. Plus, as I mentioned above Thunder also has a bunch of mascot friends and together they provide tons of laughs for your little ones. Check them out for yourself:

3) Party Deck

Here is the my TOP REASON to go to a Storm Baseball game. You can rent the party deck!!!! It’s not just a fun name… it is your own private party deck along the first base line. It can accommodate about 20 of your friends and includes waitstaff, food and drinks. It is perfect for a birthday party, work event or just hanging out with good friends.

For me just the fact that all the food and drinks were there ready for us when we showed up (popcorn, chips, different sausages and hot dogs plus drinks and waitstaff to keep the cold beers coming) was enough to win me over. Plus, the Kid Zone is just to the right of the deck and there are clean restrooms located right behind you. I mean it is the ideal way to watch a game. Meaning as a mom YOU will actually enjoy yourself (shocking right?).

I am all about people catering to my needs when we travel with 5 munchkins in tow so you can imagine how happy I was when I could actually sit back and relax. Watching the game was great but watching the munchkins on the bar stools laughing, playing and enjoying the game was priceless.

  • Chelsea says:

    I hope my office wins because every single person works so hard for the Temecula Valley and this would be the perfect way to strength our team, relax and just have fun!

  • Shelley says:

    Super family friendly!!! Much better than a Padre Game. Here, they play silly songs and have interactice games/activities throughout the entire baseball game to entertain everyone. You can win prizes all afternoon. You can sit closer than the Padre game for less money. They throw balls out to the kids in-between innings if you sit behind the dugout.

  • Janet says:

  • Randi Kelley says:

    We LOVE the Storm! Our Travelball team all did the camp and had so much fun. They used their tickets on opening day. These 9 year old boys have been through a lot… They had paid coaches right here in the Valley thst were stealing money from the kids. Not only that but in it for the wrong reasons. They didn’t want the boys to succeed. The boys have come a long way and are getting better every day with their new coaches. They work hard and deserve to play hard… I’d love to win this for our team!

  • Stephanie Schmo says:

    Winning this would give our family the opportunity to spend time with each other along with our friends and make lasting memories while enjoying our favorite past time. This contest would be cool to win because of the MAGNITUDE of the package…20 tickets and $600 voucher! Awesome and very generous… Something we wouldn’t be able to do on our own.

  • 4 Days after Christmas my husband lost his job and our family has seen some true struggles since this time. The day of the game is my son’s 3rd birthday and I would love for him to have a birthday party with family and a few friends and this would be an amazing way to make this happen! Also, my best friend, who just came back from her second deployment, is also expecting her 3rd child and I would LOVE to reveal the gender of her baby in a special way. What better way than a jumbotron! Thanks for taking the time to read this. Good luck to everyone!

Winning the package would be awesome we could bring all our friends to share the experience with us!

  • Lise says:

    I really want to win this deal for my future son in law! He is a hard working nursing student at Cal Baptist University in Riverside and in less than two months he will marry my oldest daughter, also a student at CBU. Both are a blessing from God and both bless our community in so many ways…my daughter Natalie is the founder of the local non profit called The Rose Again Foundation and her fiancé Jeff is a board member. They raise awareness for needs of local foster children and work tirelessly when not in school, raising money to help the local foster community. This summer alone, thousands of dollars of extra curricular activities for local foster children will be taken care of by the foundation they started together. They are both exceptional young people who are doing wonderful things for others, that can never repay them simply because they care and they want to make a difference and I am so proud to call them my kids. In June, these two young people will be married but because they are so young, they and their bridal party don’t really have a lot of money to spend on the wedding or festivities leading up to the wedding, like a bachelor party! This storm game giveaway would be the ultimate bachelor party for Jeff and his good friends and family…they are all sports lovers and would have the best time at the storm game together! Please consider awarding this prize to a wonderful young man for his bachelor party celebration. This could be a night to remember for the rest of his life and I know it would mean so much to him. He works so hard and does so much for others and he deserves a wonderful night like this! Thank you 🙂
