Clouds over the Stadium

I try to get back to my hometown every summer to visit family and see several College World Series games.  This is the fourth College World Series played at TD Ameritrade Park, the (relatively) new stadium in downtown Omaha. Up until 2011, the CWS was played in Omaha’s Rosenblatt Stadium for 60 years.

This year, a violent thunder thunderstorm interrupted, then stopped one of the games. It was fun to watch the storm descend on the stadium (so long as you were in the grandstand comfortably underneath the second deck). Here are a few photos of the storm moving in, along with a couple of shots of the stadium (inside and out) before the game.
