06.13.2011 / Omaha welcomes back the NCAA College World Series!

Last year, college baseball fans said goodbye to Rosenblatt Stadium, and this year, they will be saying hello to TD Ameritrade Ballpark. If you are a longtime College World Series fan and are not sure what to expect, we have some information to share.

"While we will all miss Rosenblatt, we look forward to many new memories made."
  • With a 360-degree concourse, fans won't have to miss any of their favorite college team’s game when they make a run to the concession stand.
  • There are 24,000 seats and each seat is 21 inches wide, with 36 inches of leg room (much larger than most stadium seating).
  • There are 250 flat-screen televisions and - most importantly - an average of one toilet for every 58 fans.

    If you’re looking for a place to stay during the College World Series, there are a lot of hotels within walking distance of the ballpark, and you can find information on all of them (and how to make reservations) at the Omaha Convention and Visitors Bureau.
     
    There’s also many areas to visit and explore near the new Ballpark – in fact, the area surrounding the park is almost entirely composed of new stores, restaurants and activities that both the new visitor and the Omaha native will enjoy.  You can visit the Hot Shops Art Center or the Bob Kerry Pedestrian Bridge.  You can also check out the nightclubs and restaurants that can be found on 14th Street.
     
    If you’ve stayed close to Rosenblatt in years past, you may not know that the new Ballpark is also walking distance from Omaha’s Old Market district – with lots of restaurants and stores to stop in and explore.
     
    While we will all miss Rosenblatt, we look forward to many new memories made during the College World Series in and around the new ballpark. Do you have a favorite place to go in the area? Share it by leaving a comment below!
