College baseball, beer go together in stadium for 1st time

Beer Kegs are hooked up to the dispensing system at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, Neb., Wednesday, June 15. The beer taps will be open to the general public for the first time at the College World Series starting Saturday, part of a pilot program that could lead to alcohol sales at more NCAA championship events. The NCAA's decision to allow beer and wine sales in all seating areas at TD Ameritrade Park was made primarily in response to requests from fans and stadium officials and not motivated as much by the creation of a new revenue stream, managing director of championships and alliances Ron Prettyman told The Associated Press.
