Ol’ ballyard now football facility – Omaha.com

Submitted by on September 23, 2010 – 11:49 am

Rosenblatt Stadium was getting made up Wednesday for the final chapter of its illustrious history.

Workers were busy painting logos and other markings on the field that will be the Omaha Nighthawks’ home for the next two months. A stage was to be constructed where Grammy-winning recording artist Nelly will perform at halftime of Friday’s season-opening game against Hartford.

The stadium has undergone some drastic changes since the Omaha Royals played the final baseball game there on Sept. 2. The infield has been sodded and the protective netting behind home plate has been removed, as has the hitting screen in center field.

Goal posts have been installed. The scoreboards have been converted for football. So have the baseball clubhouses.

“In a little more than two weeks, we’ve transformed this from a baseball stadium to a football stadium,’’ said Brian Melekian, director of business management for the United Football League. “We’re pretty proud of that.’’
