S&S Seating has been contracted by the Omaha Zoo Foundation to remove and distribute the memorabilia stadium seats from Rosenblatt Stadium.
Rosenblatt Stadium opened in 1948 and has been host to several minor league baseball teams, most recently the Omaha Royals, which played at Rosenblatt from 1969-2010. Most notably, Rosenblatt Stadium was home to the College World Series® (CWS) for 60 years. The final CWS game at Rosenblatt was played on June 29, 2010.
“Rosenblatt Stadium is a sports icon,” said Calvin Sisson, Executive Director of the Omaha Zoo Foundation. “We are thrilled to be able to share the stadium memorabilia with baseball and College World Series fans across the country. All proceeds from the stadium seat sales will benefit the Infield at the Zoo Legacy Project, a project that will create a beautiful outdoor public space to be enjoyed by future generations.”
Seat pairs are available for purchase from the Omaha Zoo Foundation. Season ticket holders can purchase their specific seats now, with general public sales beginning in July 2011. The limited inventory of seats will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis and the seats are being sold in the 'as-is' unrefurbished condition that they are removed from the stadium. For purchase questions and/or further details on memorabilia sales, please contact the Omaha Zoo Foundation.
“We are thrilled to partner with the Omaha Zoo Foundation on this stadium seat project,” said Dale Sprinkle, President of S&S Seating. “College World Series fans have a unique opportunity to own a piece of history, and S&S Seating is honored to provide our expertise to ensure each seat pair is professionally removed and distributed.”
