Today is the first game of the 63rd College World Series at TD Ameritrade Ballpark in Omaha. Jack Diesing Jr. is the President of the College World Series Inc. and says this Sunday they will celebrate another milestone. The 8-millionth fan will walk through the turnstiles and that person will receive upgraded tickets to this year’s series as well as CWS mementos.
Diesing says the first six-thousand fans that walk through the gates Sunday for the 4:00 pm game will also receive a series commemorative pen.
Diesing says the 8-millionth fan to attend the series is a real celebration. Back in 1950 the attendance for the entire series was 17,500 people. Today more than that amount attends the series daily.
