Omaha’s Rosenblatt Stadium plays host this week to baseball’s College World Series for the 55th year in a row. My grandpa took me to CWS games there when I was a boy. More recently, while living in Omaha as an adult, I saw what a big party the CWS is and what a boost it is for the city’s image, as well. Watching on ESPN from my apartment in Chicago, I see my hometown the way it truly isâ€”as a great place for baseball and sports in general.
Rosenblatt is also home to the Omaha Royals, KC’s triple A farm club.
