Rosenblatt Stadium signage is no more

The last sign proclaiming Rosenblatt Stadium as the home of the College World Series tumbled to the ground Monday as a crew cut it free of the scoreboard superstructure. The sign came down as the razing of the stadium continued. The Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium is taking over the property. An Omaha businessman bought most of the signage at an auction in 2011.
