OMAHA, NE. June 12, 2020 – College baseball fans who would normally be enjoying the 2020 NCAA Men’s College World Series (CWS) this week can still make waves and win a championship of their own. Visit Omaha and College World Series of Omaha, Inc. are inviting fans across the country to do a virtual stadium wave, in any fashion they like, for a chance to win a VIP package to next year’s CWS.
“This is the first time TD Ameritrade Park Omaha will be empty during the month of June, but baseball fans can still get it on the action,” said Visit Omaha Executive Director Keith Backsen. “For 10 days in June, let’s shake off the COVID cobwebs, get our game faces on, and make some waves.”
Family, friends, neighbors, coworkers, little and big leaguers, sports announcers, media members, and even couch potatoes, can get creative and record a virtual wave. Post it on Twitter and/or Instagram using #CWSWave for a chance to win. Upload your videos directly to VisitOmaha.com/CWSWave for an additional chance to win. Enter as many videos as you like – each qualifies as an entry. The winner will receive four club seat tickets to a 2021 CWS game, a parking pass, four passes to the Diesing Hospitality Suite with complimentary food and soda, two $100 Omaha restaurant gift cards, passes to top Omaha attractions, and a CWS swag bag filled with souvenirs. The winner will be chosen on June 24, 2020, the same day a new CWS champion would have been crowned.
“Omaha has proudly hosted the NCAA Division I Men’s College World Series since 1950. While there is no baseball this June, the team in Omaha has collaborated to continue the spirit of the event,” said College World Series of Omaha, Inc. Board President Jack Diesing. “We are excited to see the wave spread across the country celebrating the CWS.”
Team Omaha has an entire list of fun interactive, socially distanced activities with a CWS theme. Check them out here.
Stand up, stretch your COVID cramped calves and make some waves. Next year we’ll play ball.
