Omaha Royals to salute Rosenblatt Stadium on Thursday
Kansas City and Omaha have been affiliated since day one in 1969…and Rosenblatt Stadium has been the site of Omaha’s home games since the beginning. Tomorrow night, the O-Royals will play their final regular season home game at the historic stadium. The club will play in a new ballpark in Sarpy County in 2011. Thursday’s game starts at 7:05 and the O-Royals will host a Fan Fest outside of the stadium from 5:30 to 7:00.
Pre-game ceremonies will begin on the field at 6:45 p.m. Frank White, Paul Splittorff, Dennis Leonard and Willie Wilson are scheduled to participate in the ceremony.
