I' sitting here watching the CWS on TV, and I can't help but ask, who build the Ameritrade Stadium in Omaha? Evidently those folks don't know that you never, never build a baseball stadium in a position where the prevailing winds constantly blow in from the out field? And, at Ameritrade the winds are usually blowing in from the outfield at about 30 MPH plus!!! Your guys built this stadium backwards - what were you people thinking?

The stadium appears to be an impressive monument to baseball, but it is lousy to play baseball in, and the games are boring - nobody can hit a ball out of this park!!! Ted Williams couldn't hit a ball out of "this" park in most days or nights.

If my calculations are correct, you need to move the fences in about (60) feet to compensate for the almost constant wind factor. If you don't, the NCAA, due to the ill-advised contract obligations they entered into, will probably continue to play there, but what they are playing but isn't baseball - if you take the homeruns out of baseball, the game is no longer baseball - it Ameritrade ball. And, I for one, don't enjoy watching Ameritrade ball.

Playing in this stadium has ruined the CWS - period - full stop.
