June (Storm Promotions Are) Bustin’ Out All Over

June (Storm Promotions Are) Bustin’ Out All Over

This my monthly public service announcement on this season’s promotions coming to The Diamond, this time for the month of June.

Since last month’s post, I noticed a few people on Twitter had made their first trip to Lake Elsinore to see the Storm. Granted, they were up there on days that there wasn’t anything particularly special going on, but that doesn’t matter. I’m taking full credit for their trips.

I’d be remiss to not mention Dallas‘ Stormcasts from Lake Elsinore, available on iTunes, Google Play, and everywhere else you happen to consume the Kept Faith podcasts.

Having said that, here comes the Storm’s June promotions:

Hispanic Heritage Weekend

Friday, June 1st to Sunday June 3rd

Join us as we celebrate the Hispanic culture with unique in-game promotions, deals and more!

A little surprised they didn’t do this last month for Cinco de Mayo weekend. But, then again, that’s pretty much just an American faux-liday (like St. Patrick’s Day) so it shouldn’t be all that surprising.

Thunder’s 18th Birthday

Saturday, June 2nd

Celebrate the Storm’s lovable green dog, Thunder, as he turns 18! Join him and many of his mascot friends for a birthday to remember!

Wouldn’t this actually be Thunder’s 126th birthday? You know, in dog years?


This is one of those promotions that the Storm do a really good job with. It’s like a mini Comic-Con every year, all focused around baseball.

Superhero Night

Friday, June 15th

Come dressed as your favorite superhero for ticket discounts and enjoy a superhero-themed night of baseball!

Black Trooper Hat Giveaway

Saturday, June 16th

Star Wars fans get your Black Trooper Hat, limited to the first 1,000 fans and enjoy a Star Wars-themed evening! Dress as a Star Wars character for ticket discounts!

I’d much rather have this than a Star Wars-themed bobblehead that I can only get with a special ticket only available for purchase online. Just sayin’.

Gamer Day

Sunday, June 17th

Join us for a look at some of our all-time favorite video games with this Gamer-themed game! Enter our raffle to benefit the San Diego Blood Bank for a chance to win a Playstation 4!

The Big Lebowski Night

Thursday, June 28th

A night movie buffs can’t miss as we pay homage to a classic!

They’ve got good burgers at In-N-Out, which is just down the road from The Diamond. And I don’t think I’m out of my element saying that.

#EyesOn25 Social Media Night #2

25 lucky fans will be chosen via a Storm Twitter social media contest to participate in a unique behind-the-scenes Storm game experience!

For the first one last month, they had meet-and-greets with a bunch of players and trivia contests on Twitter. So if you get picked for this month, expect more of the same.

Daily Promotions

Giveaways and themed nights are fun enough, but the Storm do something every home game. Each day of the week has either discounted tickets, food & drink specials, autographs, or post-game fireworks. Sometimes all of the above.

Salute to Soldiers Sunday Fundays

Bark ‘N Brew Mondays

Fiesta Tuesdays


Thirsty Thursdays

Fireworks Fridays

Signature Saturdays

What are you waiting for? Get your butts out to Lake Elsinore. Don’t make me have to tell you again.

Even though I will. A month from now. I can pretty much guarantee it
