The Storm play several days each week and there are always promotions like “2 for 1 Tuesdays” or “Fireworks Fridays” that make it fun and affordable for Canyon Lakers to make a game.

Originlly affiliated with The Angels, The Storm are now a Padres farm team since 2000.  Every season the Boys of Summer entertain the crowds at Pete Lehr Stadium with great baseball.  Storm Stadium seats approximately 8000 people and game attendance is always strong.  The stadium is only 4 miles away from Canyon Lake and the facilities are world class.  It’s a great ball field for watching a game and The Storm organization really excels at entertainment with lots of crowd interaction, great music, fun contests and things to do in the stadium that make it more than just a baseball game.

One of the entertainment highlights is always the team mascot, Thunder.  Thunder and his friends have been entertaining both adults and kids for years and they keep the games light and enjoyable.

The Storm are scheduled to play 140 games this season in the California league against teams like San Jose Giants, Bakersfield Blaze, and Rancho Cucamonga Quakes.  For game stats, recaps and the latest news the team website is loaded with a ton of information about the team and the league.

Ticket prices range from $7.00 up to $14.00 depending on seat location with discounts for military and seniors.  Season tickets are very affordable and they have a great Family Fun Pack promotion for 4 box seats, hot dogs, soda, and several other perks for only $60.  For a full listing of promo nights and special events, check The Storm promotions page.

Here’s a few tips to help you make the most of spring games:

  • It’s still spring and nights get a little cool so bring a jacket, sweatshirt, or blanket.
  • If you are bringing the kids, Sunday is the day that kids rule the diamond with all kinds of fun events for kids.
  • Come a little early for best parking and fun pre-game entertainment.

So whether you’re a baseball fan or not, make the short drive from Canyon Lake to give a Storm game a try this spring and expect a great night of entertaining ball and activities.
