2019 will be Mark's 19th season with the Storm. Originally from New York, he earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design from the State University of New York at Oswego in 2000. He then moved to California in 2001, where he immediately made his mark in baseball by creating the internationally-known Storm jersey logo.
Mark resides in sunny San Diego with his son, Andrew. He enjoys movies, music, video games & spending time with his son.
Andres returns to The Diamond as a member of the front office after suiting up for the Storm as a player in the San Diego Padres organization. After a car accident ended his playing career back in 2007, Andres went back to his native Puerto Rico, where he earned a degree in Accounting and Math from the University of Puerto Rico.
When asked about his favorite part of working for the Storm, "Showtime" says that while he is no longer a catcher, he still gets to work behind home plate.
Karen grew up in Riverside and moved to Murrieta 16 years ago. She's married with 2 kids and 3 step kids. Prior to joining the Storm, Karen - who bakes in her spare time - spent 15 and a half years working for Claim Jumper. She's looking forward to seeing what she can bring to the Diamond Club and the Storm franchise.
No one has been around Storm Baseball longer than the team's Office Manager, Peggy Mitchell, who was an original Storm Season Ticket Holder from the inaugural 1994 season. Along the way, Peggy has also been a Storm sponsor, Suite Holder and Booster Club Member, as well as being a part of the Host Family program for players Paul McAnulty, Brian Burgamy and Khalil Greene.
The team's Director of First Impressions, Peggy has been working with Storm since 2009 and has been in her current position since 2010. Her work background includes eight years as a Financial Manager at a Vocational Rehabilitation company and 17 years as the Office Manager for Dynasty Pools, a company that she and her husband have owned since 1986.
Peggy grew up in Orange County, CA and attended Anaheim High School, home of the Colonists. In 1979, with apologies to John Travolta and George Clooney, the former Peggy Miller said "I do!" to her husband Jeffery.
Peggy, a doting grandmother of Kaylee and a loving mother of Krystle and Jesse, also roots for the Padres, Angels and her beloved Storm (of course!).
The 2019 season will mark Arlene's 18th season in Minor League Baseball, and second with the Storm. She began an intern with the Akron Aeros, spending 13 seasons there in various positions before moving on to the West Virginia Power and the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes.
Though born in Ohio, Arlene grew up as a Pittsburgh Pirates, Steelers and Penguins fan. If the Pirates win a World Series in her lifetime, there will be endless tears of joy.
Away from the ballpark, Arlene prefers to spend time with her husband and two pugs.
The "fast-paced" Communications Director & Senior Group Sales Executive is entering his eighth season with the Storm after completing an internship in 2012 as the Assistant Director of Media Relations. If you haven't met Eric, you just might recognize him as "Ace," The Fastest Squirrel in the World, the rodent sensation racing fans across the field at The Diamond each game.
The Fastest Squirrel in the World made his Major League debut on April 27, 2013 at Petco Park, where he garnered national attention from ESPN and The MLB Network.
The proud Saratoga Springs, NY native previously worked for The National Baseball Hall of Fame, The Saratogian Newspaper and was an Assistant Sports Information Director/ Track & Field Coach at his alma mater, SUNY Oneonta. Eric graduated with a degree in Business/Economics with a concentration in Marketing and was a four-year Athlete on the Track & Field team, where he earned 2-time All-American honors and a National Championship in the 4x400 meter relay for the Red Dragons.
Eric is married to his beautiful "California Girl" Jamie and loves to spend his free time jumping on the trampoline with his boys Jayden & Nathan. Eric recently welcomed Reagan, his baby boy, to the family.
Though fans get to witness Storm players making memorable plays on the field at The Diamond, there is someone off the field and behind the scenes who is starring in his own right: Storm Clubhouse Manager Terrance Tucker. Thanks to Terrance's tireless efforts, upbeat attitude, and commitment to service and professionalism, these minor leaguers get big league treatment from the reigning 2013 & 2014 California League Clubhouse Manager of the Year.
The San Diego native was a basketball and tennis standout at Kearny High School and Mesa Junior College before majoring in Communication and earning a degree from San Diego State. In 2003, Terrance made his Major League debut (as a bat boy with the San Diego Padres) and continued in that role with the Padres until 2010, when he became the Clubhouse Manager for the Class A Fort Wayne Tincaps, the Padres' Midwest League affiliate.
In 2011, Terrance joined the Storm family and was an integral part of a California League Championship season. He is currently a member of the Storm front office, working as a salesman and ambassador for the team. "T" is a proud father of two beautiful children.
Eric Colunga is entering his seventh season with the Lake Elsinore Storm and his sixth as the Director of Ticketing after interning with the club in 2013. His favorite part of his job is being able to walk out, look at the field and realize he is selling baseball or events for a living, while creating memories for families and fans.
Before joining the Storm, Eric worked for several sports organizations, including the Los Angeles Sparks, WLOP Power Lifting Federation, Whittier College and Chino High School varsity offensive line coach.
Eric is a graduate of the University of San Francisco Master's Program, where he earned his Master's in Sport Management. He previously attended Whittier College, where he graduated with a degree in Kinesiology and Nutrition Science with an emphasis in Sport Management. He was a four-year letter winner for the Whittier College football team, where he holds records for power lifting.
In his free time, Eric enjoys spending time with his family, going to LA Rams football games, concerts with his wife and going to movies. Eric is also a board member for a nonprofit organization "Cops For Kids," which helps enabled children and seniors to enjoy some of the necessities that were not available to them through other agencies. He resides in Eastvale with his wife Alyssa and dog Walter.
In 2015, Sean celebrated his 25th season in Minor League Baseball including 19 seasons as the Director of Broadcasting for the Lake Elsinore Storm. The "Voice of the Storm" since 1996, he has called over 3,000 games in the California League.
The Southern California native and Pepperdine University graduate worked for the UCLA men's basketball team in 1990-91 before beginning his broadcasting career with the Boise Hawks (then California Angels, Northwest League) in 1992. While in Idaho, he also broadcast televised men's & women's college basketball and professional World Team Tennis.
In 1999, Sean went global as the play-by-play voice of "Baseball 2000," a Sony PlayStation game produced by Interplay Sports. Also in 1999, and again in 2004, he served as the emcee for the Baseball Winter Meetings Awards Luncheon.
Sean has been a part of seven league championships, 17 playoff appearances, thousands of miles of joyful bus rides and countless chuckles. He has witnessed kangaroo courts and sipping soirees, as well as having the pleasure of calling a perfect game, two no-hitters and a 30-0 blowout win.
Sean is a proponent of please and thank you and a fan of the sights & sounds at the ballpark.
