Great shots!  That place looks amazing I cannot wait to watch a game there.  I am really impressed with the outcome.

Nice shots!  The skyline reflection in the first pic is *fantastic*!  I'm eagerly, however impatiently, awaiting the statue to be placed and the rest of the construction garb out of the way.

That last pic really reminds me of the Sprint Center glass in KC.

Nice shots Brad. I really like the first one with the skyline reflection in the glass. As Tuna said, once all the construction stuff is outta there, you guys will have to hit it up.  8)

Here's what it looks like with the signage illuminated.  Still waiting on that "Omaha" to be lit up.

Great shots guys, I feel like the lights have been on (all night) the last 3-4 nights.  

still not holding my breathe for illuminating the "omaha" part, unless with spot lighting.

The "TD" isn't up on the scoreboard sign yet.  Can't wait to see that side lit up as well.

The "OMAHA" part of the sign has been lit the past several nights.  Its lit internally like the other pasts of the sign.

so will construction be 100% by that time, or will there still be areas they need to complete before the CWS, and just work around it for the CU/NU game?  That game is only about a month and a half away  :shock:
they told me to get a smaller signature.

Adam and I both have CU Media Passes so we will both be there.  However anyone can bring in a camera to the game.  Creighton, UNO, Storm Chasers, and Nighthawks all allow cameras, Lancers are the only team with restrictions.

They're testing the video boards today with static images along with little crowd bumps like "TOUCHDOWN" and "STEAL!!!"

It looks *fantastic*!!

Organ transplant for new ballpark

The music will have an old familiar sound when College World Series fans stretch in the seventh inning at Omaha's new ballpark downtown.

TD Ameritrade Park will not only have live organ music for “Take Me Out to the Ball Game.” An organist will play that classic and other music on the same old organ that has provided the soundtrack for NCAA championships and minor league baseball games at Rosenblatt Stadium for more than 60 years.

It article said he was still "retired" but it also mention that Lambert thought it was going to be some "new electronic" organ so may be since its still the old one he will come back.
