2019 SEASON PREVIEW
The grass is always greenest during baseball season, and this year, so is The Diamond. Fresh off a complete ballpark paint job this offseason, Storm Stadium looks nearly brand new. Enjoy the freshness brought in by a new season from some of our many premium seating options. The Diamond has every kind of premium seating option to fit your needs, whether as a large group or with a few friends. If you’re planning a great time with a large group, consider the Hangar 24 Flight Deck, a multi-level party deck complete with couches, bar rails, high-tops and more. New just last season, the Hangar 24 Flight Deck is an ideal option for large group picnics and parties. Our Four Top seating, located on the first and third base sides, provide table space for you and three others to enjoy along with wait service. The Four tops offer plenty of space and great views of the field at an affordable price. Located behind home plate are the High Top seats; elevated bar-style seats complete with a drink rail and unobstructed views. Then there are the suite options for a really good time. The Diamond has 10 luxury suites, each which fit up to 10 people, an Owner’s Suite that can fit 20, and the SkyBox, which holds eight. All our suites come with a unique menu, wait service and much more. Enough about our amazing seating options, though. Let’s take a look at what promotions you can look forward to at The Diamond.
