OMAHA, Neb. -- Johnny Rosenblatt Stadium was the host of the College World Series through 2010 before moving across town to TD Ameritrade Park.

FATHER'S DAY IN OMAHA
Trips to the College World Series have become a tradition for a dad and his son from Texas.
Complete story
Today, most of the space formerly occupied by Rosenblatt is a parking lot for Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo. But that doesn't mean the magic of the stadium is gone.

In the middle of the zoo parking lot sits a memorial to the stadium -- Johnny Rosenblatt's Infield at the Zoo. Opened in 1947, Rosenblatt was older at its close than any ballpark in Major League Baseball outside of Fenway Park and Wrigley Field. It was the home of the College World Series since 1950 before being demolished in the summer of 2012.

Check out the sights and scenes from the remains of Rosenblatt, and some past images of the longtime home of the CWS.
