Baseball season is underway here at Werner Park! We've wrapped up a beautiful April here in Nebraska, and it's hard to believe that May is already here! We have so many fun things happening at the ballpark this month.

I'm most excited about Star Wars Night on May 5th with my friends at ParentSavvy! The Storm Chasers players will be wearing Boba Fett jerseys, and ParentSavvy will be giving away FIVE different Star Wars LEGO sets, including the Millennium Falcon! We also have Friday Fireworks that night. Who doesn't love fireworks?!

I tried to convince our office that we need Stormy shaped fireworks, but they told me that I'd get too big of a head. Whatever that means. I think my head fits perfectly! I mean sometimes I have to be careful walking through doors, but that's normal, right?

I'm getting distracted. Back to it!

Coloring Contest

The Storm Chasers announced a cool new monthly coloring contest! Pick up your coloring sheets at Werner Park, or download the coloring sheets. When you turn them in at Fan Services at your next Chasers' game you'll get a goodie bag. This will also give you a chance to win Storm Chasers gear and be the "Play Ball Kid" at a future game! My favorite is, of course, the Stormy sheet. So make sure to make me look good!

Teacher Appreciation Night

Another fun night we have is Teacher Appreciation Night on May 18th! Teachers work so hard to make learning enjoyable, and we at the Storm Chasers want to highlight that! Teachers are the ones who let me come into their classrooms in the offseason and read with so many of their students! Make sure to thank your teachers for all that they do, and invite them out to Werner Park on May 18th!

One more important event coming up in May is the announcement of our "Why I Want to Go to College" scholarship winners. This essay contest gives middle school students from all over the state and the entire country the chance to tell us why going to college is so important. Stay tuned for that announcement, and if you missed it this year be sure to write in next year!

I can't wait for all these events, and so many more coming up in May and the rest of the summer! Baseball is finally here! There are so many chances for you to come enjoy it with me. See you soon!

Stormy

Stormy is one of the beloved mascots for the Omaha Storm Chasers - our very own Back-to-Back Triple-A National Champions. This big green guy loves being at Werner Park, and it shows by the big smirk on his face! Stormy loves to cheer on the Storm Chasers and loves it even more when the fans cheer with him!
