Omaha Storm Chasers baseball games are great for families, couples (could totally be a cheap date night), and friends. I’ve asked fans to share their tips for Storm Chasers baseball games, including where the best seats are, parking tips, how to get autographs, and more insider knowledge. I’m sharing the tips I thought were most helpful below. You can see the original post and tweet, too, to see all answers.

Tips For Taking Kids To Games
“Taking kids is a must to fully enjoy the atmosphere. Get berm tickets, bring a blanket, let the kids run around, lay back and enjoy the game,” said Scott R. “All seasons are good to go, outside of the first couple of weeks. With small children, weekday night games leave plenty of room for your kids to roam.”
“Always check the schedule for any fun nights (Princess, Star Wars or Super Hero nights),” said April S.
“Kids will love Friday fireworks or Sundays kids day. The kids will love the family fun zone or mini golf. Berm seats are great if you have little ones who might need to runaround,” said Tiffany N.
“The Family Fun Zone is free if you are a member of Centris.” said Kaila W., who also said the berm is a good option for those with kids. She packs “a picnic blanket and toys/ bubbles to keep them occupied.” Show your Centris card to get the free wristbands, said Jeanne D.
“Kids have the Centris Family Fun zone with carousel, playground, putt-putt. Wristbands are $6 a piece. Basketball hoop and a mini baseball field for games in center/right center field. Fireworks nights are pretty nice,” said Jaima N.
Laura C. recommends getting the Little Storm Chasers membership. “Get $10 off thru Parent Savvy. It’s good for Sunday games which are often Hy-Vee Can Good Sundays.” Tiffany N. thought she’d seen the Little Storm Chasers membership half-off through Parent Savvy, so you just might to double check things.

Storm Chasers Parking Tips
“Carpool if you can! And don’t park too close for out park balls can hit the car,” said Ash H.
“If just going to game, always go to the free lot. Plenty of spots. If tailgating, paying the $5 is worth it,” said Scott R.
Storm Chasers Game Seating Tips
“For places to sit, early season get first base side, they have the most sun. For summer get third base seats behind the dugout, they get the most shade,” said Scott R.
“We like seats to keep both (kids) contained. I feel more stressed in the berm,” said Ash H.
“We’ve sat behind home plate before when we were able to score those tickets and they were second to NONE (we were right up at the fence!).” said April S.
Going to sit on the berm? Cameron W. recommended standing or sitting by right field and bring a blanket to sit on.
Food & Drink Tips For Storm Chasers Games
“You can bring water bottles empty with no labels for free water,” said Ash H.
“They have gluten free options at some of the food stands!” shared Kaila W.
“Food wise we love the nachos from LeMesa or just getting a good old fashioned hot dog or pretzel,” suggested Tiffany N.
“Tuesdays are 50-cent nights on a lot of the food and Wednesday are Wiener Wednesdays for cheap hot dogs,” said Natalie J.
“If you go to last game of year, alcohol drinks are cheap!” said Jaima N.
Discount Ticket Tips
“I got tickets before the season when they had their promotion for the cold weather. $2/ticket was a steal.” said Danell T. from Small Guy Promotions
Tips For Storm Chasers Autographs
Fans in the know suggest heading to the bridge area by left field if you want to get autographs, and get there early.
“Come early enough to get autographs on the bridge (see who is going to be there by looking on their website),” suggested April S.
“Getting autographs is a lot of luck & perseverance. Always try to use the players name when asking. ‘Mr. O’Hearn would you sign my card please?’ Always be courteous by saying ‘Thank You’ afterwards. Players never have to sign, they do it out of their own kindness & on their time,” said @RoyalsCollector. “If a player does not sign. Don’t be rude to them. They have a job to do and sometimes they just don’t have the time to stop. Try again the next day or the next game your at. Always have a pen or sharpie ready for them use and the item you want signed. Always be kind and courteous to the other fans around you trying to get autographs too. Don’t push, shove, crowd others around. If you get the autograph you want let somebody else get in for a chance too.”
“Be polite. Call players by name (Mr. Gore) not number (Hey 0). Bring a pen (ball point pen for baseballs a sharpie for anything else). Have something for them to sign (I recommend a ball, program, or usually you can get a team card set for souvenir shop),” said Jeff E. “Some players won’t sign and don’t be frustrated because many others will. Often starting pitchers or catchers won’t sign because they need the longest amount of time to get ready. Before game is usually better than after.”
“Always check the schedule and go on giveaway nights! All kinds of fun stuff,” said Tiffany N. Tim T. with The Walking Tourists said the Bobblehead games are his favorite – check this post to see when the next 2018 bobble head giveaway is scheduled.
