Lake Elsinore Diamond, commonly referred to as 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. 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. The original $8 million construction estimate in 1992, however, ballooned to more than $22 million by the time of its completion.
 Other uses

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. This stadium also has a yearly event for Halloween, the "Field of Screams".
The field was also used as a location for the fan made film "left 4 dead - the movie".
