Backyard Adventures: Lake Elsinore Diamond Stadium (Minor League Baseball)

“If my uniform doesn't get dirty, I haven't done anything in the baseball game.” – Rickey Henderson

I love baseball, but sometimes having to drive an hour or two to get to the nearest baseball diamond is not what I’m trying to do after a long week. Approximately 6 miles away from our SoCal home is the Lake Elsinore Diamond Stadium: Home of the Lake Elsinore Storm, a San Diego Padres Class A Advanced Affiliate. I wanted to check another thing off my bucket list and truthfully did not know why I had not done it sooner.

While the gameplay is slower in pace and the stadium more intimate, it doesn’t take away from the game experience. It’s one of the cheapest ways to enjoy baseball around these parts.  For as little as $ 11 you can catch some of the action on the diamond. Compare that to the average ticket price of $ 50 at a major league ballpark, and it's a steal! We chose to sit on the right-field side behind the visitor’s dugout and paid $ 33 for two tickets which included a $ 3 convenience fee. Two Storm Dogs and two bottles of soda was $19.50. Add $ 5 for parking and our grand total? $57.50. To be honest, it was more expensive to purchase our tickets than it was to get a Family Pack. Next time, I’ll have to invite a couple of guests! Planning saves money, so make sure to check out promotions and mini-plan packs, ALWAYS.

Our team the Stockton Ports, the Class A Advanced Affiliate for the Oakland Athletics, fell to the Storm 8-2. Still, we had a blast! If baseball is your jam, you should look up your affiliate Minor League Baseball team. There’s no better way to cheer for your favorite team’s rising stars on a dime. Take advantage of these hot summer nights! You might take a foul ball souvenir with you.
