Omaha Change

Just as a little side note, most of you will notice that the Phillies won last night while the Braves happened to lose. Could there really be much better news than that? Now, I guess the better news would be the Phillies passing the Braves for first place in the East. However, we are only one back now, so I think that we will get ahead of the Braves very soon. Anyway, enough about that. In college, you dream of playing in the College World Series because, let's be honest, that is the only time most people ever hear about college baseball. I don't know why, but it is the truth. Anyway, there will be a new location for the World Series from here on out as Rosenblatt Stadium played its final game last night after hosting both the Omaha Royals and the College World Series for about the past 60 years. It is always a shame to see an old stadium torn down, but there isn't much you can do to fight with time. I hope that whatever the park looks like, it doesn't lose the charm that Rosenblatt held for so many college athletes and people on the verge of being called up to the Royals.
