College World Series fans will get their first look at the eight teams participating in this year’s championship. Fan Fest starts today and each team will take to the field of TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha to practice today and then later sign autographs.
College World Series Inc. President Jack Diesing Jr. says the official opening ceremonies take place tonight and that includes the Parade of Teams. He says, “There is an Olympic-style entrance. They will march down Fahey Street into the stadium and then of course our fireworks and the Army Gold Knights Parachute Team coming in with the team colors. We encourage everyone to come down.”
Fan Fest starts shortly after 9 a.m. Opening ceremonies will start at 8:30 p.m. Both events are free of charge.
