The Omaha Storm Chasers return Thursday for a seven-game homestand, and somewhere during their stay Werner Park will hit the 1 million fan mark.
Werner Park opened April 16, 2011, attracting 6,533 to see the Storm Chasers take on the Nashville Sounds. Team officials now expect the 1 millionth fan during a four-game series with the Iowa Cubs that runs Thursday through Sunday. New Orleans then visits Werner Park for three games Monday through Wednesday.
Since Werner Park opened, the Storm Chasers have had 171 total game dates that have attracted 988,471 fans, or 5,781 per game.
The 1 millionth fan will receive a prize package and be recognized at the game.
The first game of the Iowa series is set for 7:05 p.m. Thursday.
