Atmosphere/Character:

The atmosphere was typical of other new minor league ballparks. I did not feel that the Storm went over the top with their promotions and contests during the game. I am glad that this was kept under control, since some newer ballparks get too carried away. Some of their in-between innings contests included: frisbee frenzy, tug of war, and the Pizza Scream. Prior to the game, a fan was chosen to paint homeplate. Very unique.

"Jackpot"- the mascot comes out and dances after every run scored.

The logo, containing evil looking eyes, is seen throughout the park
