The Omaha Royals

The Kansas City Royals have their farm team here in Omaha. They are the Omaha Royals. They currently play at Rosenblatt Stadium....which only has 17 games left before it is leveled and the land turned over to the Henry Doorly Zoo for expansion. Omaha is a baseball town...the college world series is held here every summer (at Rosenblatt). We had the chance to go to a game and jumped on it. It was Faith and Family night at Rosenblatt. We got to see a game (versus the Portland Beavers), see fireworks and then a free concert afterwards. Get this...the tickets were $2 a piece! It was really a no brainer. So we signed up with the Offutt Catholic Community Chapel and sat amongst fellow parishioners as we had a great night in Omaha. The Royals won...the weather was great (we were in the shade which made it even better!), the fireworks were fabulous and we all enjoyed the concert Australian Christian pop singer who is quite well known....Rebecca St. James. She had two of her brothers with her and they are starting off a singing career as well and showed us what they had to offer. It was really nice. Next year, there will be a new stadium downtown...but we will be able to say that we spent some time at Rosenblatt. :o)

Thanks for coming out to the Game and Event! The new ballpark will actually be in Sarpy County, not downtown Omaha. visit
