For the first time since 1950, we won’t hear the crack of the bat and cheer of the crowd in Omaha, we didn’t want Opening Weekend to pass without celebrating our favorite days of summer.

To help you plan the ultimate #CWSatHome celebration until we can #SeeYouAtTheSeries next year we’ve put together a few fun CWS inspired activities to share with family and friends.

Did you catch your first foul ball at the CWS? Meet your hero or maybe your spouse? Where is the best place to tailgate? Can you answer the age-old question? Right Field or Left?

The Omaha community and CWS fans are what makes the series so special. We will be featuring your stories on our social media channels throughout the summer, so don’t be shy, you could be featured next!

Since we won’t #SeeYouAtTheSeries this year, get your next meeting or virtual happy hour in the baseball spirit by downloading a CWS themed virtual background.

How many squares can you cover in CWS Bingo? Can you finish the CWS word search? Have the kids color away on CWS themed coloring pages to display in your windows or on your kitchen fridge.

We want to celebrate #CWSatHome with you and see how you’re keeping the spirit alive. Participate in one or all of these fun photo challenges. Extra points if you start a special challenge of your own!

  • History happens in Omaha and we want to see who has the oldest CWS memorabilia or gear. Take a photo of you celebrating #CWSatHome in your gear. We’ll keep track of who has the oldest threads.
  • Recreate your favorite CWS memory. Do you have a favorite photo from a past CWS? Recreate it at home and share your side-by-side results.
  • Show your spirit. Decorate your porch or window with your favorite CWS banners, signs or memories.
