It took months of labor to build the press box at Rosenblatt Stadium, former home of the College World Series. It took but a heartbeat to bring it down Wednesday morning.

Twenty-five pounds of explosives, placed in 103 locations throughout the steel girders that made up the press box’s superstructure, were ignited at 6:56 a.m. about four minutes earlier than planned.
