One final thought from Omaha…well maybe two or threeJune 22nd, 2011 at 5:30 pm by Todd Bynum under Photo/Video, Sports
Walking around the new TD Ameritrade Stadium, there seems to be a certain lack of respect for the old Rosenblatt Stadium. There is no Rosenblatt drive in front of the stadium or anywhere around it for that matter. It just didn’t seem right that with the new, they had forgotten the old. The old that had created the idea that the College World Series could be held in no other place than Omaha, Nebraska. Omaha Municipal Stadium started it all and I just felt like more needed to be done to preserve the new park.
The final out for Texas and their quick departure from Omaha this year provided a chance to make one last drive to the Blatt. ONe could almost hear the roar of the crowd as we drove down the hill and saw the Blatt still standing. Taking a picture outside the fence I remembered all of the great moments I had inside. The feeling you got when you just knew something was about to happen. Augie would pull the rabbit out of the hat and sure enough, the unexpected would happen.
but in this pictures — is more than a 1000 words — 60 years of moments — highs and lows.
