Extra stadium info – Charles Schwab Field Omaha

The stadium’s record attendance was broken in 2015, when 28,000 people showed up for a college baseball match. On 13 June 2019, the Detroit Tigers and the Kansas City Royals played the first-ever Major League Baseball game in Nebraska at the ballpark. The Royals won the game 7-3 in front of 25,000 spectators. The Tigers won the World Series in 1935 for the first time in their history. They lost the World Series four times before they won their first World Series title. The Royals won the World Series in 1985 for the first time in their history.
