Last night I had the opportunity to go to Game 4 of the College World Series, played every year in Omaha, Nebraska. The smell of hots dogs, the sound of the bat connecting with the ball, the cheer of the crowd – all remind me why I always enjoy watching the game. I attempt to make it to at least one game each year and this year I brought my camera along to get a shot of Rosenblatt Stadium. Omaha is building a new stadium so Rosenblatt only has one more year after this in which it will be hosting the College World Series. Since it has been an icon of Omaha for several decades I wanted to make sure that I was able to capture an image with the game in play and with the stands filled with a crowd. Overall, the game was pretty exciting with some good back and forth between Texas and Southern Miss. for quite some time. In the end Texas emerged the victors, though.
I took several images around twilight from different vantage points. This photograph is actually two shots taken and stitched together to create a long pano.
