I love this time of year for sports viewing.

Women’s College World Series is on (watching fastpitch is seriously underrated, those games are very entertaining IMO), the NCAA baseball tournament is underway, the NHL playoffs, MLB season in full swing, the PGA Championship a couple weeks ago and US Open in a couple weeks, and even the NBA playoffs (a distant last place for viewing for me among these options, but still light-years better than regular season).


My son’s baseball team is playing in the Battle of Omaha the end of June, same times as the CWS. I have been through Omaha in the summer when I was a kid with my Dad in his semi truck and the baseball fields lights were things of dreams for this Northern MN boy. Now in our first year of travel ball, we get to go down there and I am taking him to a game, don’t care about the cost of tickets. It won’t be the same as Rosenblatt would have been, but the CWS energy is so awesome!

My two older sons have played in the Omaha tournament that coincides with the CWS so I’ve been down there twice. The atmosphere is awesome! The fan fest outside the stadium is great with some baseball centric vendors (Baseballism, Routine, etc..).

If you’re going the 2nd week of the CWS, you’ll have better luck getting Gen Admission tickets to the outfield since half the teams will be eliminated. Otherwise you would have better luck with assigned seats.
