26. Abandoned

This is a picture of Omaha’s Rosenblatt Stadium, the home of the College World Series for all of you baseball fans.   The College World Series commitee demanded a new stadium to be built or they were moving the location of the College World Series games.  So, needlas to say a new stadium is being built in our downtown area and the Rosenblatt will eventually be a new zoo parking lot.  This is sad since the Rosenblatt has played a big part in Omaha, NE’s history.  Not sure of the time line, the World Series games will definitely be played at the Rosenblatt this year.

  1. Obviously History teaches nothing in your neck of the woods too, Out in Australia they are always re-inventing the wheel and often it comes out square. If it ain’t Broke – Don’t fix it.

  2. Lsing those old stadiums is heartbreaking. As a New Yorker, I am still devastated that they’d tear down Yankee Stadium. Just last week, when we went to visit my in-laws in Queens, we passed Shea Stadium, which is being dismantled and replaced by Citi-something. I saw my first major league game there. You’ve captured a pice of history, when attending a ball game was something a family could do on a summer evening just for fun.

  3. What a shame! I hope at least they build one of the old-fashioned types of ballparks to replace it…

    Nice colors in your shot…

  4. Colorful photo with a bit of beautiful sky visible! The story is sad, but I guess they held their breath till they were blue!!!! (You know, like spoiled little children)

  5. We sure do live in a wasteful, disposable society.

    On the upside, you have a nice image to remember this place after it’s gone.

  6. Sorry to see it go, but you have a great shot to remember it.

  7. It’s gonna be weird having Rosenblatt gone. It was such a fixture just across from the zoo.

  8. Your photo will be a nice rememberance of the good times had in that stadium. Nice bright colors.
