Looking for something to do to satisfy your baseball urges? Don’t feel like traveling to Peoria, AZ for Padres Spring Training? Want to take batting practice on the field? Like drinking beer? Or eating bratwurst?
Well, I’ve got the perfect event for you guys to attend this Sunday, and it’s all free. Well, free to attend. You’ll have to pay for the beer and bratwurst. Hey, at least I’m honest.
Excerpts from the Storm’s press release:
The Lake Elsinore Storm, the Padres High-A minor league farm club, invite fans of all ages to the 9th annual Sip N’ Swing preseason party on Sunday, March 15 at The Diamond in Lake Elsinore (500 Diamond Drive, Lake Elsinore, CA 92530). Gates will be open from 11am to 3pm and parking and admission are free.
Headlining the event is the opportunity for guests to be a part of the season’s first batting practice on the field. Behind-the-scenes tours of the stadium will give Storm faithful an inside look at the clubhouse, home dugout, press box and luxury suites. Storm mascot Thunder will be on hand for photos and fun, and fans will have the chance to take home prizes (including a VIP Package) and giveaways throughout the party. The Storm FunZone will be open for kids 12 & under and the Souvenir Store will feature this season’s newest Storm merchandise.
New menu items will be served in the Diamond Club and the concession stand will offer ballpark favorites. The right field picnic area will once again be transformed into a Beer and Sausage Fest, featuring juicy brats and local brews for those “of age.”
Guests in attendance will have the chance to purchase their favorite seats for the best games and promotions of the season, as individual game tickets will be made available for those in attendance before going public the following day. The stadium concourse will feature vendors, local non-profit groups and the Storm Booster Club.
