SeriesMisc Rosenblatt: The Final Inning DVD/Book Combo
Pledge Level: $100
We will meet local characters that made this stadium so legendary. Guys like organist, Lambert Bartak who tickled the ivories at the ballpark for more than 50 years. And the meticulous grounds keeper Jesse Cuevas who walked into the stadium as an 8-year old ball shagger & stayed until the last light went out. We’ll find out what made this south Omaha neighborhood so appealing to fans from LSU & Southern California who have come back year after year, even if their team does not. We’ll grab some tailgate food in “Dingerville” & a malt at Zesto’s ice cream shop which is now known worldwide. Given the atmosphere that has grown over 60+ years at this amazing park, it is no wonder that baseball greats like Nomar Garciaparra, Joba Chamberlain, Todd Walker, Augie Garrido and the family of legendary coach, Rod Dedeaux have nothing but fond memories for the “diamond on the hill.”
