Pictures from Warner Park

I mentioned yesterday that my wife and I would be making our first trip out to the newly built Warner Park to see our first Omaha Storm Chasers game of the season.

The Wife and I next to the new mascot.

The new stadium is great.  Very family and fan friendly.

And very spacious, especially compared to the tight quarters that was Rosenblatt Stadium. 

I got to see a bunch of the Royals' prospects in person, which was nice.

Mike Montgomery was Omaha's starting pitcher.

Mike Moustakas was at third base.

And he batted in the clean-up spot.

Eric Hosmer was the designated hitter for the Storm Chasers.

Lorenzo Cain was in center field.  He was one of the players that KC received from the Brewers in the Greinke trade.

One of my favorite aspects of the new park is that it allows fans to wander around the outfield (something you couldn't do at a minor league game at Rosenblatt Stadium).

Fans even have the option to purchase tickets to sit in the outfield grass.

All in all, it was a great way to spend a Friday night.

Do you mind if I steal a few of these pictures to try and get signed when I see the Storm Chasers play later this year?
