The Storm Chasers are also partnering with the American Red Cross for a blood drive at the ballpark during the event from 10:00am until 2:00pm in the visiting team clubhouse.

Fans will have a chance to "Taste" several new ballpark items for the upcoming season and "Tour" Werner Park as a preview for the 50th Season in Franchise History presented by First National Bank. As part of a one-day only special, box seats for Opening Night 2018 on Thursday, April 5 will also be available for purchase for only $5. 2018 ticket plans will also be available, and current package holders will be able to pick up their "Tickets" at the ballpark.
For $5, fans will be able to sample a trio of new tastes to be served at Werner Park during the 2018 campaign, including new beef brisket egg rolls, pop tart ice cream sandwiches and bratwursts. The tasting portion of the event will be separate from the tours of Werner Park guided by Storm Chasers staff that will include walking inside the home team clubhouse, press box, suites and more. Tours will leave every hour on the half hour beginning at 11:30am.
Fans who pre-ordered will be able to pick up their Tasting Wristbands at the event.
