At first glance 124MM seems like a lot of tax money which could be used on schools whatever. \
However need to understand business, revenue and financial modeling to understand why building a stadium is important to keeping the college world series in Omaha and them not losing it to another city.
Table 1: Summary of monetary impacts of CWS on Omaha and state economies
From 2008-2018 an actual/forecasted impact to the city is half a billion dollars or $514MM.
Subtract the 124MM stadium from the $514MM and tell me if its worth building the stadium or letting another city grab up the event.
