Run the bases

Run the bases at Rosenblatt Stadium, well, kind of.

The old Rosenblatt Stadium has been taken over by the Omaha Zoo and is now a parking lot (just like in the song), but the zoo did do something nice.  The built a tiny replica stadium where the old stadium used to be.  Home plate is in the same spot as when the stadium existed, actual seats line the outfield, and the field has 60 foot basepaths that kids (and adults) can run on their way to or from the zoo. On this overcast day, there were always people around this spot in the parking area.  The zoo did a nice job keeping something from the past alive today.  Here are a couple more photos.
