Anyone looking to get to the Omaha Storm Chasers game tonight against Nashville is encouraged to arrive early with a large crowd being anticipated. The parking lots will open at 4:45 p.m. with Limited Picnic Benches and Omaha Steaks Tailgating Grills available for no charge.

Guests are encouraged to arrive before 6:30 p.m. with the busiest times expected to be between 6:30-7:15 p.m.

The first 1,500 kids ages 12 and under to enter Werner Park when gates open at 6:00 p.m., will receive a Kids Batting Helmet Giveaway courtesy of McDonald's. Tonight's game will also have a Post-Game Fireworks Spectacular presented by Kugler Vision.

There will also be a chance to win an Autographed Mystery Ball Auction during the game. You can purchase one signed ball for $30, or two for $50. The autographs range from any current or former Storm Chaser, Kansas City Royal, or from many other MiLB and MLB Teams. The identities will not be revealed until fans open their purchased bags. 

Proceeds from the auction will benefit Chasers Charities, the Storm Chasers’ 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

The Storm Chasers will take on the Nashville Sounds with the game's first pitch set for 7:05 p.m.
