INDIANAPOLIS, IN -- The NCAA will keep the College World Series
in Omaha, Neb., through 2035 under an unprecedented 25-year
The baseball championship has been in Omaha each year since
1950. The new agreement will take effect in 2011 when the CWS moves
from Rosenblatt Stadium to a 24,000-seat downtown ballpark.
NCAA president Myles Brand said Thursday the city's commitment
to a new stadium was a factor in the long extension.
The 2008 series begins Saturday. The eight teams in the field
are: Georgia, Florida State, Rice, Stanford, North Carolina, LSU,
Fresno State and Miami.
