O-Royals announce plans for final Rosenblatt days

The Omaha Royals will mark the end of their long Johnny Rosenblatt Stadium tenancy with some big events.

The Omaha Royals (Class AAA; Pacific Coast League) will spend much of the 2010 season celebrating the team's long run at Johnny Rosenblatt Stadium, and details of the team's final game on Sept. 2 are being released.

The O-Royals have signed up AT&T as a sponsor for that final game. As part of the sponsorship, fans will be able to log on to and register to win a suite for ten people, including hospitality, at the September 2 finale.

During that final game, AT&T will present a replica seat giveaway going to the first 2,500 fans. The replica seats will be created from one of the old, wooden seats that had been used at Rosenblatt Stadium in previous years. AT&T will also present a post-game fireworks show.

“The Omaha Royals are very excited about the new partnership with AT&T,” said Royals Assistant General Manager Rob Crain. “We look forward to celebrating with all of the metro area this very historic event.”

The O-Royals had previously announced plans to honor the old ballpark with uniform marks the entire season.
