Beaver Lake renamed OmaHog Lake for remainder of College World Series

Arkansas pitching ace Blaine Knight speaks to the media during the College World Series in Omaha.


Support for Arkansas’ run at a national baseball title continues today just hours ahead of the Razorbacks’ opener against the Oregon State Beavers in the championship round of the 2018 College World Series.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers ordered that Beaver Lake shall be known as OmaHog Lake for the remainder of the series, which takes place at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha.

The announcement came from the Little Rock District of the agency in a tweet Monday. The best-of-three series is scheduled for 6 p.m. Monday Tuesday, Wednesday, and on Thursday, if necessary.

The idea was pitched on Sunday by and later promoted by THV11 with a poll that had received 192 responses by Monday morning.
