ON-DECK HITTER: The OMAHA WORLD-HERALD's Pivovar noted NCAA Dir for Football & Baseball Damani Leech will succeed Poppe, and has been Poppe’s "right-hand man for the past decade." Leech said, "You learn pretty quickly the nature of this event and how special it is to the Omaha community and the baseball community at large. The challenge is not unlike what I consider for other events like the Masters, Indianapolis 500, U.S. Open tennis. Those are events that have been in the same place for many, many years, and they’ve got a challenge to grow and enhance the event while at the same time preserve what is unique and special about it. That’s not easy to do. It’s a bit of a daunting task." Leech added, "Something that Denny has taught me over the years is how important relationships are" (OMAHA WORLD-HERALD, 6/15).
