Baseball is an important pasttime in the United States. In Omaha, baseball is especially important during the month of June because the NCAA Men's College World Series is held here. While there isn't a major league team here in Omaha, there is a AAA team for the Kansas City Royals called the Omaha Stormchasers. This AAA team used to play at the famous Rosenblatt Stadium, but have moved to the new Werner Park this year. While many people were sad about Rosenblatt Stadium being shut down because of its history, two new ballparks were built to create new memories. Werner Park is just down the street from my house. I haven't had the chance to go to the games as much as I would like to, but it is a great place for families and baseball enthusiasts. It is an important place in my community because of the people it attracts, the business it brings in, and the fun memories that are made while there.
My photos of Google Shades at Werner Park show just the main entrance of the ballpark. It is a very modern ballpark that is sunken into the ground, so you walk down into your seats. The park can hold about 9,000 people, including the berms where people sit on grass. There is even a play area for children that get bored with watching the game. Oh, and there are tons of concession stands that have normal ballpark foods like popcorn and hot dogs, and even local foods like Omaha Steaks hamburgers and La Mesa Mexican food.
