The Omaha Storm Chasers continue to fill in more details for “Omaha Potholes Night”, which is scheduled for Wednesday, April 24 at Werner Park.
The team has contacted 14 Omaha Metro public works departments, including the cities of Papillion, Omaha, La Vista, Bellevue, Council Bluffs, Blair and Bennington, in addition to the Sarpy County Public Works Department.
All of those employees have been invited to attend "as a thank you for their hard work working in snow and ice during winter, and now repairing roads in the spring, to ensure the public’s safety."
Storm Chasers players and coaches will wear special batting practice gear featuring the Omaha Potholes name and logo prior to that evening’s game. That gear will be autographed and auctioned off during the game, with all of the proceeds going to Chasers Charities to repair local little league fields with City of Bellevue Recreation and DC West Youth Sports damaged by historic floods this spring.
A limited amount of Omaha Potholes jerseys will also be available exclusively at Werner Park on April 24 for $50, with 100% of net proceeds going to Chasers charities for flood relief.
In addition, special concessions items will be available that night, including Rocky Road Ice Cream with fans given shovels to use as spoons, as well as “Pothole Philly” Sandwiches featuring pot roast.
Omaha Potholes gear, including caps and shirts, is now available for pre-order through the Storm Front Team Store, with 20 percent of proceeds going to Chasers Charities to repair damaged fields in the Omaha Metro affected by historic flooding.
