MLB commissioner Rob Manfred set to make announcement Thursday in Omaha
MLB commissioner Rob Manfred is scheduled to make an announcement Thursday at the College World Series.
No details were provided regarding what that announcement will be, but a press release stated Manfred will make it in coordination with the Omaha Storm Chasers and others. The press conference will begin at 2 p.m., and The World-Herald will provide a live stream.
In February, MECA confirmed to The World-Herald that the MLB had begin initial discussions to play a regular-season game at TD Ameritrade Park in conjunction with the CWS. As World-Herald columnist Tom Shatel noted earlier this week, MLB has been trying to improve its relationship with college baseball.
There was also a report from D1Baseball earlier this year suggesting the MLB draft could be moving to Omaha as well.
Stay tuned Thursday for more from the announcement.
