Werner Park

From BR Bullpen

Werner Park in Omaha, NE, is the home of the Omaha Storm Chasers, the Kansas City Royals' Triple-A East farm team.

Until 2010, they shared Johnny Rosenblatt Stadium with the College World Series. Pacific Coast League schedulers complained about having to keep the then-Omaha Royals on the road for two straight weeks every season - which would not be a problem under the scheduling system implemented in MLB's 2021 Minor League Reorganization. Two stadiums was not the intended solution, but it emerged when the O-Royals and the city of Omaha couldn't come to terms on sharing TD Ameritrade Park Omaha, the new home of the College World Series that opened in 2011. The O-Royals were looking elsewhere when Sarpy County built Werner in the Omaha suburb of Papillion, NE.

Omaha-based Werner Enterprises bought naming rights. Ironically, given the main tenant's new nickname, rain and snow postponed its 2011 debut. Sarpy County Tourism's office is in the park, and a statue of Omaha native Bob Gibson greets fans outside.

It seats 9,023 and measures 315' to right field, 310' to left and 402' to center.
