No more Omaha? Hardly

Great column on the possibility of the College World Series on (find it here).

It's hard to believe the event would leave Omaha, a place that has become synonymous with college baseball. It's not quite as hard to believe it would leave Rosenblatt Stadium for some new yet-to-be-built downtown digs.

At either rate, here's hoping neither happens. Yes, Rosenblatt is old and the stadium's innards are in need of refurbishing. Heck, they needed work seven years ago when I was there.

The bottom line, however, is when you're at a game in the ballpark on the bluff, you're not worried about how the concession stands look. Losing the CWS would be a devastating blow to Omaha and college baseball fans.

Let's hope it doesn't happen.
