Lake Elsinore Diamond, commonly referred to a Storm Stadium, is a baseball park in Lake Elsinore, California. It is primarily used for baseball and is the home field of the Lake Elsinore Storm minor league baseball team, a part of the California League.[4] The field at the Lake Elsinore Diamond is named the Pete Lehr Field.


It was built in 1994 and has a capacity of over 8,000 people with 6,066 permanent seats.[5] The original $8 million construction estimate in 1992, however, ballooned to more than $22 million by the time of its completion.[6]

Other usesEdit

The company that currently manages the site is Storm Entertainment, a newly developed entity of Storm Baseball. When baseball is not in season, the field is used for a number of other purposes including concerts, boxing matches, and local high school graduations, all of which can utilize temporary seating to increase the capacity to 14,000.[7] This stadium also has a yearly event for Halloween, the "Field of Screams". [8]

The Diamond Club is the name of the restaurant on site where wedding receptions and other special events can be hosted.[9]


Right field is 310 feet away from home plate. Center field is 400 feet. Left is 330 feet. The grass used is Tiffsport, a hybrid Bermuda grass, which is overseeded with ryegrass for the winter.[10]
