Tonight was the opening night for the Tulsa Drillers. I love watching baseball, so I had to make it out there. I didn’t get off work until 6:30, and the game started at 7:05. I did make it for the first pitch. The National Anthem was being sung when I made it to the stadium. I had to get my ticket before I could get in. I had planned on getting a general admission ticket, but they were sold out. That was okay, I still enjoyed the game.
The Drillers became the AA team for the LA Dodgers. Oklahoma City became the AAA team for the Dodgers. OKC changed their name for the Redhawks to the Dodgers. I’m so glad Tulsa didn’t change their name too. Tulsa Drillers sounds way better than the Tulsa Dodgers!
The Drillers across the chest is like the Dodgers. They won, 10-4. It was a fun game.
Two years after it’s opening, I finally went to a Tulsa Drillers game at ONEOK Field. I guess I hadn’t gone to a game yet, because I didn’t like them moving it downtown. Drillers Stadium had been at the Tulsa Fairgrounds for a long time. I rarely go downtown, unless it’s to visit the BOK Center, or now ONEOK Field. I was worried about parking. At the old stadium, there was plenty of parking, and it was FREE! Now, most places you have to pay. We ate at Spaghetti Warehouse before the game, so we parked there. It was only a couple of blocks away.
I’m going back. The field itself is awesome. It has a kids play area, which I love. There’s nothing like kids running up and down, because they get bored. Just my opinion, but I think they did a great job on the stadium, I still wish they would have built it somewhere else.
