The U.S. Olympic Swim Trials begin Monday, and one of the two pools used by Team USA qualifiers will stay in Omaha after the event.
Omaha Sports Commission officials announced Friday that the ten-lane warm-up pool will be part of a new Multisports Complex. Omaha business leaders Mike Cassling and Lisa Roskens raised $1 million to buy the pool. They're also leading an effort to raise funds for the complex.
Game two of the 2012 Mens College World Series is Monday evening in Omaha.
Arizona won game 1 Sunday night, 5-1. The championship is a best-of-three series. If Arizona wins Monday night, they win the championship. If South Carolina wins, the championship will be decided Tuesday night.
South Carolina won the College World Series in 2010 and 2011.
The day South Carolina clinched its second straight College World Series championship last year, the Omaha Storm Chasers played a day game. Combined attendance at the two venues reached almost 34,000. That surpassed attendance numbers in nine cities during a full slate of games in Major League Baseball. But as good as it sounds for Omaha as a baseball mecca, the Storm Chasers are struggling to grab some attention.
