Home Plate Moved
By John Durkee
Tulsa, OK – Home plate was air-lifted, via a helicopter, from the old Driller's Stadium at the Tulsa fairgrounds to the new Oneok Field in downtown Tulsa this afternoon.
On hand to help set the plate were Mayor Taylor, Drillers' owner Chuck Lamson, Tulsa Stadium Trust Chairman Stan Lybarger and Chamber of Commerce President Mike Neal.
The Drillers will play their first game at the new stadium in April of next year.
