The Diamond

 

Since Opening Day 1994, Pete Lehr Field* in Lake Elsinore has been considered one of the gems in all of Minor League Baseball, hosting more than six million guests for Major League, California League, NCAA and high school baseball games over the past 24 seasons. Thousands more have enjoyed concerts and music festivals, high school sports and graduations, civic and charitable events, to go along with exciting Lake Elsinore Storm action.

With over 100,000 bricks the stadium is part Camden Yards, with a prominent 36-foot-high right field wall it is part Fenway Park, but for the faithful Storm supporters who have embraced this timeless classic it is simply known as The Diamond.

The Diamond can accommodate more than 7,000 fans for baseball with over 4,000 fixed seats, 12 luxury suites at the press box level and a grassy hill down the right field line for kids of all ages. The Diamond Club Restaurant & Bar, open to the public on game days, is a minor league novelty with a major league feel and a great option for booking a special occasion, including wedding receptions, quinceaneras, holiday parties, team banquets and much more.

Off-season renovations in 2017 brought changes to the stadium seating bowl, incorporating Four Top table seating on both the first and third base side, and new padded seats as well as High Top seats behind home plate. Phase Two of the renovation project will be completed in 2018, highlighted by a new ballpark deck and bar area down the left field line.

The Diamond has been the host venue for numerous notable events, including the following:

 

-1995 California League All-Star Game

-1996 California League Championship Series (1st Storm Championship)

-1999, 2009 and 2016 California League vs. Carolina League All-Star Game

*After the 1993 baseball season, the Palm Springs Angels relocated to Southwest Riverside County and became the Lake Elsinore Storm. Pete Lehr, a local businessman and baseball enthusiast, donated the land where the stadium is built. Pete Lehr Field, known as The Diamond (or Storm Stadium to some), celebrated Opening Day on April 15, 1994.
