Vanderbilt players celebrate a 3 2 win over Virginia at the College World Series at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, Under Armour Shoes Sport Chek
As the Commodores prepare to play Virginia tonight in Game 1 of the best of three championship series, here are five things that have stood out in my first trip to the College World Series:
TD Ameritrade Park
Who knew that Omaha had so many dining options? Fans, players, parents and media types alike have been raving about the section of town called "Old Market." There is shopping, as well as all different kinds of cuisine and entertainment venues that line the streets made of cobblestone. I didn't take one, but the horse carriage rides offered around these city streets seem like the best way to get into the 19th century vibe of Omaha's most popular area.

Sure, there have been plenty of fans representing the eight teams that have played in the College World Series this year, but the overwhelming support of this event has been local. Thousands of Nebraskans flock to TD Ameritrade Park, some waiting in line for same day general admission tickets for long periods of time in hopes catching a glimpse of the teams in action. Everyone, from the radio and television outlets, to the restaurants and shopping venues seem to value this event as a major part of their summer each year.

The players at the College World Series are treated like celebrities. Talking to players on Vanderbilt's team, this may have been the thing that surprised them most upon arrival in Omaha. Even if you're the seldom used third string catcher, you're a big deal to the fans in Omaha. They want pictures with you, they want you to sign an autograph, and they just want to stop and shake your hand to say they met a member of the team. Between all the bonding time that two weeks in the same hotel creates for these players and the way they are courted around the city of Omaha, it truly is a memory they will have for the rest of their lives.

This is a fantastic venue for college baseball. Sure, the field may be a little spacious and the wind might blow in from center field quite often, but it is a great place to catch a ballgame. I have circled the 24,000 seat stadium and have yet to find a bad view. Nor an uncomfortable one, as even the bleacher seats have chair backs. There is a sizeable video board, a flawless playing surface Under Armour Curry 2 High and a well designed concourse with all kinds of concession options. The players also have first class amenities in the underbelly of the stadium, which opened Under Armour Micro G Motion Women's Running Shoes
