Omaha Storm Chasers
The team played in Johnny Rosenblatt Stadium, home to the College World Series for over 60 years. Omaha has been the only Triple-A location for the Kansas City Royals since their inception as an expansion team in 1969. Following the 2010 season, the Royals moved to their new home, Werner Park in Sarpy County, and changed their name to Storm Chasers.
Beginning with the 1999 season, the team nickname was changed from Royals to the Omaha Golden Spikes. The name change was a reference to the Golden Spike driven at Promontory Summit, Utah, to celebrate the completion of the First Transcontinental Railroad in 1869. It was intended to celebrate the rich railroad tradition in Omaha, headquarters of Union Pacific. The well-intentioned name change proved unpopular with many fans; after three seasons as the Golden Spikes, the UP sold their majority ownership and the nickname was returned to "Royals" for 2002.
