Omaha's Burke High School to get video board from Rosenblatt Stadium
The video board from Omaha’s landmark Rosenblatt Stadium will soon have a new home.
Burke High School will have the video board in time for the Nebraska state track meet May 18th. Bob Danenhauer, supervisor of athletics for the Omaha Public Schools, says it’ll cost $400,000 to locate the video board at Burke, which will be paid for with donations.
Danenhauer says the current Burke scoreboard will move to Central High School. Central High School's scoreboard will move to Burke West. Danenhauer says OPS and the city of Omaha began discussing the future of Rosenblatt’s video board two years ago. Those discussions led to an agreement to move the video board to Burke if private donations paid for it.
Rosenblatt Stadium closed in 2010. It was the home of the NCAA men’s College World Series for six decades.
