In spite of a heartbreaking 5-6 loss to Lancaster JetHawks on opening night, April 10 Lake Elsinore Storm hit a homerun opening the season with a year-long celebration honoring the teamís 20 years of baseball in Southern California.

The Lake Elsinore Storm became a fixture in Southern California when they opened their gates on April 15, 1994. The celebration of the teamís anniversary kicked off Thursday during the teamís home opener held at The Diamond, a state-of-the-art facility that has been continually voted one of the finest ballparks in all of the Minor Leagues.

Voting for the Stormís 20 to Remember campaign, selecting the top 20 Storm players as chosen by fans via social media and at the ballpark opened at the game. Stars such as Darin Erstad, Joe Urso, John Lackey, Jake Peavy, Xavier Nady, Chase Headley and Jedd Gyorko are just a few of the players on the ballot.

Many special surprises were on tap for guests on opening night and throughout the season according to an article by the teamís director of media relations, Eric Theiss.

"The Storm Souvenir Store will feature a bobblehead quartet of All-Stars including John Lackey, Darin Erstad, Jake Peavy and Chase Headley. This collectable set will be issued individually in May, June, July and August," the article states.

During the Game scheduled on June 7 against Inland Empire, an Alumni Night will be held to welcome back many former Storm players. Every one of the teamís 70 home games will feature a promotion to honor a milestone anniversary.

Special events on the schedule for the 2014 season includes a Home Improvement Night complete with fireworks on April 25, a Motherís Day Brunch on May 11, and a "GEEKend" to celebrate all things geek culture including a Superhero Night on Friday, May 16 a Star Wars Night on Saturday, May 17 and a Medieval Day on Sunday, May 17.

A Family Campout and Fireworks Night will be held in June, an Armed Forces Weekend in July, A Padres Homecoming night will be held in August and a Fan Blowout in September all promise to provide fun the entire family can enjoy.

Daily promotions will also return this year with the newly themed T-N-T Tuesdays where guests can enjoy discounted tacos and tallboy beers. Margarita/Military Mondays will feature $2 margaritas, and all military personnel will receive up to four free tickets with a valid military I.D.

Wackie Weenie/Wine Down Wednesday will give fans the opportunity to enjoy free unlimited hot dogs and free wine tastings. (951) Thirsty Thursday has been revamped for this season, with $9 tickets, $5 parking and $1 beers and soda to delight patrons of all ages.

Fireworks Friday will wow all in attendance as a post-game fireworks extravaganza will light up the Lake Elsinore sky after every Friday home game. Social Media Saturday features prizes, giveaways and more for fans that follow the Storm on social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Sunday Funday is when kids rule The Diamond, and will have an opportunity to publicly announce the game, run the bases and more.
