Forever, or at least long destined to be known as the Rosenblatt replacement, the College World Series got its built-just-for-it home in 2011 when TD Ameritrade Park opened three miles due north of where the event blossomed for 60 years in the lovable, somewhat ramshackle stadium that is no more.Well before the last of Rosenblatt Stadium met its demise, courtesy of strategically placed explosives that were denoted on August 22nd of 2012, the organ and “Road to Omaha” statue that were a big part of the ambiance at the old neighborhood-based stadium were moved to the new downtown digs, which has the exact same outfield dimensions of where the CWS was played annually from 1950 through 2010.

A nod to the acreage of between the lines outfield grass aside, there’s scant similarities between the structures that were named for a local mayor (Johnny Rosenblatt) and corporation (TD Ameritrade), although the corporate-backed ballpark does reside on a street named for the Omaha mayor (Mike Fahey) who was in office when the decision was made to build it.
