TD Ameritrade Administration was Awful!!!
Love the people of Omaha and their support of the CWS. But my gosh, what a cluster when it comes to the administration of the stadium. The general admission line was over a half a mile long due to only 1 general admission gate being open. Only 4 security attendants for 5,000 people. Fans were still coming in after 3 innings. Concession lines were unbelievably long, taking over a half an hour to get a beer and just as long to get something to eat. They even ran out of peanuts!

It would be so easy to improve this situation - open more gates to accommodate the large crowds and have more people working concessions. Or put more time between games.

A great event like the CWS needs to be run like the first class event that it is.

That sucks to hear. It was very noticeable at the beginning of the game that the stadium was not full for the first few innings.

FIFY

Everything about Rosenblatt was better.

The tailgating, the relaxed atmosphere, the way GA line was situated, the gift shops outside in people's yards, actual Zestos, the zoo being right there.

TDA is just concrete and store fronts. The poor people in GA just have to stand on the concrete sidewalk next to parking lots that you need a pass to get in to.

First time I've ever been caught sneaking in liquor in my life.

Then I missed Pap's home run while waiting in line for beer. Sigh.

re: TD Ameritrade Administration was Awful!!!
Yeah, I noticed how empty it was early in the LSU game and early in the Fla game yesterday.
The second game is too close to the first game.
They don't have time to get them in and out.

Pathetic they can't run it any better.
That reminds me of the cluster the Minute Maid Classic is especially when LSU is there. They had us standing in a line in a downpour trying to get in when most everything was GA.

If they can't do it better I bet there are a ton of cities that would love to bid on this event.

We tailgated up until about 10 minutes before first pitch. When we walked to the GA line, we said no way. Like you said, it was wrapped around the stadium. Stopped at a restaurant to have dinner and walked in with no wait during the 5th inning.

It was empty because they didn't open the gate until 30 min before first pitch, and only 1 line at the gate took Flash Tickets.

So if you waited in the long arse line, and the wrong one that didn't accept Flash, you had to go get back in a new line (again only 1 at my gate) where there was only 1 security person and 1 Flash Scanner. A LOT of people used Flash.

We got to the gate 45 min before the game and still missed first pitch.

Been searching the flash seats app all week and nothing has ever shown up for me. Not sure what the deal is.

Just like everywhere else now. Management is only worried about cost control. Customer service has become an afterthought.

If you buy tickets from the NCAA website they use Flash.

Rosenblatt had its problems but that was part of the charm of that old majestic shrine on the hill. I wonder if they took a poll how many people would say that Rosenblatt was better than TD Amertrade. Bring back Rosenblatt!!!
