History of Omaha hosting the College World Series


The first three years of the CWS weren't played in Nebraska. It spent two seasons in Kalamazoo, Michigan and a season in Wichita, Kansas. The current home can thank former Omaha mayor Johnny Rosenblatt, along with a group called "the founding fathers" in local circles. Rosenblatt spearheaded an effort to build Omaha Municipal Stadium.
