Opening Celebration Day

Who will ‘Go the Distance’?

Is this Heaven? No, but for college baseball fans, Charles Schwab Field Omaha is pretty close! In fact, beginning Thursday, June 16, you can consider the home of the 2022 NCAA Men’s College World Series as a little slice of heaven on earth.

Opening Celebration Day’s free activities begin at 9 a.m. (CDT) on Thursday, June 16, with team practices. The MCWS Fan Fest presented by Capital One will open at 11 a.m. and provide family-friendly entertainment, including interactive games, photo opportunities, prizes and more.

If you screen it, will they come? Evening activities will kick off with the Field of Dreams movie being played on the giant video board in right field. The classic baseball film is just one of the many free activities planned for the MCWS kickoff.

Here’s the starting lineup (all times Central Time):
