New light is shining on Road to Omaha sculpture

Sports

June 14th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) – Fans attending the College World Series at night will notice some new lighting on the Road to Omaha sculpture in front of the main gate at TD Ameritrade Park. Lighting fixtures and glass panels attached to the sculpture’s concrete backsplash, as well as a new spotlight, provide a different kind of illumination. 

CWS Inc. president Jack Diesing Jr. said the lighting is synchronized to provide an alternating spectrum of colors behind the sculpture.  The 1,500-pound bronze sculpture was created by John Lajba and depicts four baseball players celebrating victory at home plate. It was dedicated in 1999 and moved to the downtown ballpark from its original location at the old Rosenblatt Stadium.

Wainwright leads Cards over Mets and Harvey 2-1

Sports

June 13th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

NEW YORK (AP) — Adam Wainwright became the major leagues’ first 10-game winner by pitching seven scoreless innings and sent Matt Harvey to his first loss of the season, leading the St. Louis Cardinals over the New York Mets 2-1 Thursday in a classic pitching matchup. Wainwright (10-3) retired his first 11 batters before David Wright’s single, and allowed four hits with six strikeouts and two walks. Wainwright matched his career best by winning his fifth straight start, dropped his ERA to 2.18 and got his 1,000th career strikeout when Wright was called out on a first-inning curveball.

Known best in New York for freezing Carlos Beltran with a called third strike to end Game 7 of the 2006 NL championship series, Wainwright had been 0-4 with an 8.46 ERA in four starts against the Mets since beating them on April 18, 2010.
