College World Series Hosts
 
The Exchange Club of Omaha is proud to be the first service club (beginning in the 60's) to partner with the NCAA and CWS, Inc to host a team each year during the College World Series. Today, seven other service clubs are also involved, each service club hosting one of the eight teams. From unloading  team equipment and luggage at the airport, to greeting the team, coaches, and families at the hotel, to hosting a brunch at Happy Hollow for the team, to providing extra meals and snacks, to organizing outings (if the team requests), to rooting for them while they're here, to seeing the team off at the end of their stay in Omaha...we do it all, and have a blast doing it!
