Never Been to Rosenblatt? Act Quickly.

rosenblatt_stadium_panoramic_view

I have a friend from my college days in Kansas named Dave. He and I have been friends for about 20 years, and the basis of our relationship has gone through many phases. In college, enormous gin and tonics served in 32-oz. Big Gulp cups were the start of our bond. Later, food ruled the day, as we experimented with various “food highs” brought on by the overconsumption of ribs, pizza, hot dogs, or whatever we could find lying around. More recently, we share stories about our kids and our more moderate habits are on display.

Throughout that entire time, there has been one enduring constant – baseball. One of our big dreams is to take a buddy trip to the College World Series in Omaha. We never did it while we lived in the midwest and it would have been easy, so now we will have to work a little harder, as Dave would have to come from Denver, and I would have to travel from Virginia.

rosenblatt_statueBut the dream is still there, and the timetable is a bit accelerated now. Seems the Omaha Royals are building a new downtown stadium (who isn’t?) and the mayor of Omaha isn’t willing to keep venerable Rosenblatt stadium around just for the Series. Which makes sense – keeping something that big around for an event that happens one month out of the year is not economically sensible. But many, many people will miss the friendly confines of Rosenblatt.

So if, like Dave and I, you’ve always dreamed of taking in the CWS in its original glory, make your travel plans right now. I’m sure the new place will be nice, but Rosenblatt was built in 1948 and has a ton of history behind it. This is one of those things you don’t want to regret having never done.

  1. I’m surprised they aren’t willing or able to find another use for it. You’d think they could figure out a way for high school teams to play there or something.

    Good luck getting out there. I totally believe you can make it happen!

  2. I’m sorry, I must make a correction here. The downtown stadium is being built FOR the College World Series. Allegedly, the NCAA wouldn’t be willing to keep the CWS in Omaha if a new stadium wasn’t built (because, I can tell you from many years experience, the ‘Blatt isn’t the most modern baseball structure!). So, terribly long and politics-driven story short, a new stadium is being built downtown. Right now, its only scheduled use is for the CWS, as the Royals and the city weren’t able to reach a happy agreement.

    So what the Royals are actually doing is building a 2nd (and much smaller, per PCL rules) new stadium somewhere else, probably in west Omaha. That’s an overly simplified version of what’s going on, but I just wanted to chime and say it’s NOT the Royals’ fault that Rosenblatt is at its end. We are looking forward to our next 25 years in the Omaha area, but will certainly miss Rosenblatt. I hope you and your friend do make it out for the CWS, or some ORoyals action soon!

  3. What I can’t imagine is how the new stadium can possibly host the tournament. It sounds too small.

    • After reading it again, I think you’re right. The listed capacity for Rosenblatt on BR.com is 22,000. To replace that with a 6,000 seat stadium and expect it to serve the same function seems strange. Are they moving the College World Series site anytime soon? Where’s Brian Foley when we need him?

      Also, 6,000 seems low for a AAA ballpark. I believe there are minimum requirements for each level, so I’m sure they know what they’re doing, but I thought AAA’s minimum was higher than that.

    • Okay, I checked with Brian Foley, who runs The College Baseball Blog. He pointed out that the Royals new stadium and the new Omaha Baseball Stadium are two separate projects.

      The Royals ballpark will be located in Sarpy County (the county just south of Douglas County, where Omaha is located) and is expected to cost about $20 million. The Omaha stadium will be built in downtown Omaha at a cost of about $128 million and will host the CWS and various other functions.

      The sticking point, I would think, is that Omaha’s mayor has said that the new downtown ballpark won’t work without the Royals (or some other professional inhabitant). Either that thinking has changed or the Royals are going to have some competition in the future (if another team could even be put in so close – so many questions!).

  4. See, now that was an error on my part. I should have asked Minda her thoughts in the first place, as she’s the only person I know who lives in Omaha and knows the situation firsthand.

    • Aaand, I should have not stormed in here like some frothy-mouthed doucher….I should, at some point, say that I love this site, even though I don’t usually comment. I was just defending my home turf and my home team. Carry on, carry on.

    The Royals aren’t building a downtown stadium. The downtown stadium is being built by the city and private wealthy Omahans for the College World Series to stay in OMaha for the next 25 years. The Royals and Sarpy County (within the metro) are building a 6000-seat stadium which is more in line with what the Royals, and minor-league baseball, would like to have.

  6. I’m rapidly making friends with the notion that I screwed the pooch on this one. But it’s always nice to see that passionate and informed fans are reading the site.

    I promise, if I make it to Omaha in the future, I’ll go to both stadiums.

    I thought this would be my year, but the Commodores just missed out and I wish all 8 teams the best, but especially to Florida and South Carolina.

    It should be a great series!

    The new stadium will also be home to the new Omaha UFL Nighthawks.

  12. ok i live near omaha and the situation is that the royals are moving to sarpy county builing a much smaller stadium. rosenblatt holds around 22,000 people but the royals averaged only 3,500 hundred a game. they are also changing their name with the move but i do not know what it is. the new ballpark downtown will host the cws and the creighton bluejays baseball. all else is a mystery. it is correct that the ncaa demands a new stadium or else the cws is out of omaha but rosenblatt is not bad. i know baseball is played on a diamond but come on lower the standards for best game played on dirt.
