Haymarket Park's solar eclipse view was a home run

By  | 

LINCOLN, Neb. -- The Lincoln Saltdogs wore custom solar eclipse jerseys at a game inside Haymarket Park Monday. The game stopped for viewing of the eclipse, and afterward, the jerseys were auctioned off.

Outside the stadium, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln held a science fair free to the public. It began at 10am and was completed after the eclipse.

Thousands watched the phenomenon from Haymarket Park -- including people from China, Florida and Chicago.
