Have you seen what's been going on at North Elgin and Archer?
Yeah. There's a huge, beautiful, brand-spankin' new, $60 million ballpark there now.
Kiddo and I checked it out today. Just to, you know, check the acoustics and such.
We want to make sure this ballpark is up to snuff, after all, don't we?
Between my son and I, we're always good for an acoustics check.
Look at that view from third base. So choice.
I want this dude's job.
You can come downtown to see the new ballpark yourself, you know. For free, even.
Your opportunity is this Saturday. The Drillers are hosting an open house, DrillersFest, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the ballpark. You'll have the opportunity to snag some tickets to upcoming games, some sweet Drillers gear and a first taste of what will be available at the the new concession stands.
Opening night is coming up on April 8, following by a Friday Fireworks game the very next night. Picking up some tickets to both of those games while you're at DrillersFest on Saturday would be wise. My guess is that they'll be tough to come by at around this time next week.
Because ONEOK Field in Tulsa's historic Greenwood District is about to become the new place to see and be seen in Tulsa, Oklahoma this summer.
