My mission: to preserve and cherish the memories of Rosenblatt Stadium – Omaha’s original home of the College World Series and the Omaha Royals.

This blog is what you get when a well-meaning first time author lets other priorities get between him and his goal of publishing a book. I’m planning to publish the story of my Rosenblatt experience in 2015.
Mine is the story of a kid who grew up virtually in the shadows of Rosenblatt’s towering stadium lights, left the neighborhood as an adult and was drawn back again and again. My love affair with Rosenblatt culminated with an in-depth behind the scenes experience few have had the opportunity to experience. I invite you to come along with me on a journey that will help us all remember the grandeur of Johnny Rosenblatt Stadium.
In this blog, I have tried to capture just how special a place Omaha’s Rosenblatt Stadium is. I refer to it in the present tense because the stadium still stands as I write this and because, if we allow it to, the legendary field of dreams will remain forever in our hearts and minds.
