TD Ameritrade Park: Home of the Creighton Bluejays
TD Ameritrade Park opened its doors in 2011. The stadium plays host to the College World Series in addition to being the home of the Creighton Bluejays. The Bluejays began their first season as a Big East Conference team in 2014. TD Ameritrade Park replaced the original host of the College World Series, Rosenblatt Stadium. Creighton split games between Rosenblatt and the Creighton Sports Complex before making TD Ameritrade Park its permanent home.
Food & Beverage 4
TD Ameritrade Park provides plenty of food and drink options for all tastes, although some are a little pricey. Among the numerous food options are reuben sausage ($13), fork & knife chili-cheese foot long dog ($8), grilled chicken sandwich ($7), hot dog ($4.50 or $3.50), cheeseburger ($6), and pizza ($6).
Standard snacks such as popcorn, nachos, jumbo pretzels, peanuts, funnel cakes, and candy all can be had for $3-$4.
For soda, your best bet is the $5 souvenir cup. Pepsi products are served. Rock Star Energy drink, Gatorade, water, and iced tea are also available. Draft beer (Miller Lite and Coors Light) along with Mike’s Hard Lemonade ($7) and canned beer (Budweiser, Bud Light, Leinenkugel’s) are also available.
The atmosphere for a Bluejays game is unique. On one hand, the team plays in a fabulous stadium. On the other, the stadium is so massive that there is no way for a college baseball team to fill all the seats and the fact that so few seats are taken does take away from the stadium experience. With the fan to seat ratio being so advantageous for the fans, you have your choice of where to sit, left or right side, sun or shade, etc. There is a fabulous video board in right field and a great sound system that adds to the experience.
TD Ameritrade Park is located right near the CenturyLink Center, which is a multi-purpose arena that hosts sporting events, concerts, etc. With the combination of the two venues being so close, there is plenty in the way of food and drink options in the area.
Blatt Beer and Table is located directly across the street from the ticket office. The big draw here is the outdoor beer garden located on the roof. There are plenty of drink options and they serve typical tavern type food.
Just down 13th Street is The Old Mattress Factory. “The Matt,” named because it was indeed at one point, a mattress factory, is another popular area hangout. Again, there are plenty a drink options, food choices for adults and children, and a great smoked turkey Reuben.
The Bluejays have a small band of loyal followers who attend. Other folks are there more to see where the College World Series is played than to root on Creighton. The opposing team gets some good-natured ribbing and the umpires hear the occasional catcalls but the fans keep their language appropriate for children. The Creighton fans are a nice bunch and although there aren’t many of them as compared to the number of seats available, they add to the enjoyment of the game.
TD Ameritrade Park is located just north of I-480 and plenty of signs will direct you to the right place. Once at the stadium, parking is plentiful. Once inside, concourses are extremely wide and you will have no problems maneuvering around. There are plenty of restrooms and a large amount of handicapped seating is available.
Return on Investment 4
Attending a Creighton game will cost you a little more than the average college game, but you are watching the game from a fabulous facility. Parking is $8 in the main lots, but you can find some directly across the street from the main gate for $5. Tickets run $10 for adults and $7 for children to the vast majority of games, but a few games may run a little higher depending on the opponent. Another option allows you to purchase a $35 ticket and sit in the press box where food and drinks are included. If you choose this option, be sure to purchase your tickets in advance, as the price increases to $45 on game day.
Be sure to take a look around the concourse. On the walls are decade-by-decade boards of College World Series results and celebrated players. It is a nice touch.
An extra point goes to the Creighton cheerleaders. The “RBI girls” add a little extra not normally associated with baseball.
The venue is just tremendous. Be sure to take a walk around the entire stadium.
Attending a Creighton Bluejays game at TD Ameritrade Park is a fun experience. The atmosphere in no way can match that of the electricity that goes with the College World Series because there are so few fans as compared to seats. However, once you get past that fact, TD Ameritrade Park provides good food, a relaxed atmosphere and an enjoyable time. If you find yourself in Omaha, a visit is definitely worth your time.
