Fathers Day and Rosenblatt go together like peanut butter and jelly, especially considering one or more College World Series games are typically played on Fathers Day.
Following are a few memories Rosenblatt fans shared of their fathers:
My Dad and I always played in a father-son golf tournament every year on Father’s Day. In 2002 I went to the CWS for the first time and on Father’s Day that year I was down on the bridge in right field when Nebraska was playing South Carolina. I called my Dad and while I was talking to him I snapped a picture down the …line towards home plate. It was a beautiful Nebraska afternoon and the picture turned out great…especially with all that red in the crowd.
My Dad died suddenly that Fall and I never spent another Father’s Day with him. I take that picture to work with me each year around CWS time and the 3 times I’ve been to the CWS since then I have always tried to sit somewhere in that right field corner on Father’s Day. I have a lifelong tie to Rosenblatt as it was the last place I talked to my Dad on Father’s Day. Curt Stimpson
My dad took me to my first concert after a Royal’s game. I don’t recall the year, but I was really young. Maybe about 4 or 5 years old. It was Huey Lewis and the News. It’s a shame that Rosenblatt is gonna be no more. It makes me sad. I think me and my dad will attend the .38 Special concert in July. One final game, One final concert for old times sake.

My dad taking me to the CWS and Royals games from the time I was a little girl. We still go to a game or two and after this year, I will not get to see another live CWS game. Jacque Mass Reumund
My dad and I took our first trip to the CWS this year and we loved every minute of it. It was amazing, Rosenblatt has an aura about it that transcends time. I will hate to see it go but I’m glad my dad and I had the opportunity to experience Rosenblatt and the CWS… Omaha you should dig up the Rosenblatt dirt and put it in the new stadium, there’s magic in that dirt.

Great memories of Rosenblatt – went every night with our Dad to see the then Omaha Cardinals. If you can believe – had tshirts that allowed us to get in free. Love baseball to this day!! Nancy Yambor
I will miss Rosenblatt. Lots of memories from my father living a block away watching it getting built to working there. As a family we would go to the Royals games. Carol Hughes
