Rosenblatt Stadium is the only home the Omaha Royals, and their successors, the Omaha Golden Spikes, have ever known. The park, originally called Omaha Municipal Stadium, was renamed in 1964 in honor of former Omaha mayor Johnny Rosenblatt. Rosenblatt was also home of the College World Series from 1950 to 2010. In 2011, it was replaced by TD Ameritrade Park Omaha for the College World Series, and by Werner Park for the Omaha Storm Chasers, who succeeded the Golden Spikes.
