The Omaha Storm Chasers have once again earned top honors by being named Omaha's Best Professional Sports Team, as selected on by voters of Omaha Magazine. This year marks the eleventh consecutive year the organization has received the "Best Professional Sports Team" award. The Storm Chasers organization accepted the award at Omaha Magazine's Best of Omaha Soiree: A Night of the Best on Thursday night at the Omaha Design Center.
"We are proud to be the Metro's top professional sports team for over 50 seasons," said Storm Chasers President and General Manager Martie Cordaro. "Making the fan experience at Werner Park the best it can possibly be is our top priority and we are very excited for the 2019 season to begin with the Kansas City Royals Exhibition Game."
The eleven-year stretch in which the Storm Chasers organization has received Omaha's Best Professional Sports Team honor comprises all eight seasons the franchise has played at Werner Park, where the squad has won four division titles, as well as three Pacific Coast League Championships and Back-to-Back Triple-A National Championships in 2013-14. The ballpark also hosted the First National Bank Triple-A All-Star Game in 2015.
Since hosting its initial Opening Day on April 16, 2011, over three million fans have come through the gates of Werner Park. The 2018 season marked the 50th season in franchise history since the organization first began play in 1969 at Rosenblatt Stadium.
Werner Park is slated to host the Kansas City Royals on March 25, 2019 in an exhibition game presented by Cobalt Credit Union. Tickets are still available for that contest and can be purchased at this link: http://bit.ly/2BUsp72.
Following the Royals Exhibition Game, the Storm Chasers franchise is set to start their regular season slate on Tuesday, April 9. The Omaha Storm Chasers are the Triple-A Affiliate of the Kansas City Royals. The Storm Chasers play at Werner Park in Papillion, Sarpy County, Nebraska.
