The Omaha Storm Chasers (Class AAA; Pacific Coast League) and Werner Park are hosting the annual Triple-A All-Star Game in 2015.
“We have been working to land the 2015 Triple-A Baseball All-Star Game for three years,” said Martie Cordaro, president and general manager of the Omaha Storm Chasers. “We knew we had the organization and facilities that were second-to-none and we wanted the opportunity to show all of Triple-A Minor League Baseball just what Omaha, Werner Park and the Storm Chasers could offer.”
“All of us at First National Bank believe in supporting the communities we serve and we are honored to be the title sponsor for Minor League Baseball’s All-Star Week,” said Dan O’Neill, president of First National Bank. “I’m confident that metro-area baseball fans and many others will get behind this event in a big way.”
For the past 26 summers, the Triple-A Baseball All-Star Game has showcased tomorrow’s Major League Stars in a mid-summer classic on the day following the Major League All-Star Game. This summer’s game is scheduled to be held in Durham, N.C. Eighty-six Triple-A All-Star players have gone on to play in the Major League All-Star Games. Each of the previous contests has delivered its share of dramatic home runs, flashy defensive plays and impressive pitching that has entertained fans and impressed Major League scouts alike.
“Minor League Baseball has hosted the Triple-A All-Star Game since 1988, but never before has it been held in Omaha,” said Gary Green, principal owner and CEO of the Omaha Storm Chasers. “We are thrilled that will change in 2015 when all of minor league baseball — players and executives from the International League and the Pacific Coast League — will be introduced to the city, its great baseball fans and enjoy the hospitality of Werner Park.”
The game will be broadcast before a nationwide television audience on MLB Network.
