Johnny Rosenblatt Stadium is a baseball stadium in Omaha, Nebraska, home to the annual NCAA Division I College World Series and the minor league Omaha Royals. "Rosenblatt" is the largest non-MLB professional baseball stadium in the United States of America.

Omaha Municipal Stadium was built in 1947, ready to host the single-A Omaha Cardinals for the 1948 season. The St. Louis Cardinals farm team was the first professional baseball team to call Omaha its home. Over the next few years Rosenblatt hosted several different teams. In 1969, the Kansas City Royals moved their triple-A franchise here, which plays at Rosenblatt to this day.

In 1964, the stadium was renamed to honor former Omaha mayor Johnny Rosenblatt, who was instrumental in bringing professional baseball as well as the College World Series to Omaha.

With the anticipated opening of TD Ameritrade Park Omaha in 2011, the College World Series will be moving to this new stadium, and the Omaha Royals will be moving to a new stadium in Sarpy County.
