OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — With the College World Series finals taking place Wednesday night, fans across Omaha are heading to TD Ameritrade Park looking to witness the championship celebration in person.

Before every game, fans line up outside the outfield entrance for a spot in the general admission line.

As has been the case since the days at Rosenblatt Stadium, La Vista-native Timmothy Sons was first in line. Sons got to the stadium at 5:45 a.m. Wednesday morning to get the first spot in line. He even faked others out by saying he'd arrive at 6:15 a.m. While it may seem crazy to get up that early, Sons says getting there that early guarantees him the seats he desires.

"In order to get the seats you really want you need to be the first ones because if you're the second ones in line for all you know 20 people will show up for the first person in line," Sons said. "You need to make sure if you want the seat you really want you're the first one here."

Sons' seat of choice is the front row behind the right field bullpen. He said the lines for general admission are way shorter this year compared to the last two years CWS finals.
