2016 Omaha Storm Chasers

Postby nebugeater » Tue Aug 18, 2015 6:13 pm

YEs, I know the 2015 season is still going on. The 2016 schedule was released and thought I would start the 2016 thread with it so that it doesn't get lost.

Here is the Home schedule

August looks brutal. Only one Saturday home game and no Friday home games.

Looks like there aren't many weekend games at all in June, July or August. Like Brad mentioned, if the weather is cold, it could be a rough year for attendance. I did notice they have 3 fireworks games in a row on July 1,2,3.

Home opener this Thursday. Chasers roster looks stacked. I can see Brian Duensing pitching his way back to MLB with the Royals.

Bring an extra jacket. Once the sun was down and the wind wasn't letting up it got a lot colder than many were prepared for. People were leaving in the third inning already. Think they said last nigh the crows was around 3600

Would expect the weather to be much the same tonight.

We ended up not going. My oldest had baseball practice. We had people at the game texting us that they were already under blankets during the 1st inning. I will end up going a bunch in the next 2 months including Star Wars Night, Husker Night and Salute to the Royals all in may along with a few times in April.

Maybe we need to organize a Eomahaforums thing at a a game. I live close enough where I can see the stadium from my apartment, but I have yet to go to a game. Weird.

Highlights of the day... I'm standing on the first base/right field concourse and a cute girl come trotting up towards me with a big smile and asks if I wanted to hear a funny story... I get all excited and say I'd love to hear her story... She tells me she is the events manager, shows me her events calendar... I get my hopes all up... She said someone reported me... turns out wearing khakis and a Storm Chaser baseball cap made someone think I was an usher, who was drinking beer on duty... Nuts.

Wowzers.. And that someone would actually take the time to report an usher drinking beer and eating a burger while on duty? I think I'd like to party with that guy ;)...

Ciao..LiO...Peace

Apparently wearing dress pants and a jacket and not being on drugs and everytime I go to Walmart someone stops and asks me where something is and then realizes that I don't work there.

For those of you with Cox Cable in Omaha, along with Time Warner in Lincoln and Kansas City, 6 Chasers games are going to be broadcast. I'm on a long time KC Royals yahoogroups email list, and I can verify these games get a decent amount of attention in KC. They are usually on when KC is playing a different time or traveling. There's usually a decent amount of chatter among KC based fans after the broadcast.

I just looked for available tickets....not many pairs of seats left in the box sections. Should be a great crowd.

You called it. They announced near the end of the game that it was the largest May crowd in Werner Park history.

Alex Gordon will be playing at Werner Park tomorrow and Friday. Before the announcement they had already sold 4500 tickets, with Gordon and the nice weather, the crowd should be really big. Get there early! Friday was almost sold out before the announcement so expect a hard sellout Friday night.

You were right. Last night had 7,845 for a Thursday night and I am sure that tonight will be a sell out.

Newcomer Bubba Starling’s three-run homer highlighted a seven-run third inning that carried Omaha to an 8-3 victory over Memphis in the opening game of a doubleheader.
