The wind chill outside is a balmy -10 degrees and here I am putting the finishing touches on a piece, inspired by the last baseball game at Rosenblatt Stadium in Omaha. It obviously would have been more profitable for me to have had this piece available during the onslaught of fans back in June last year during the "final" round of college games to be played at this historic site. But I wanted it "just so." I've worked on this on and off since college baseball said goodbye to the place where every program yearned to be, since 1950
This town is and will be the haven for the College World Series for at least the next 25 years, with the completion of the new ball park downtown. But it won't be the same as the cosy atmosphere of Rosenblatt.
