Tulsa, OK – All is ready for tomorrow night's first game at the new ONEOK field in downtown Tulsa. The Tulsa Drillers have settled into to their new $60-million ball park. The first game is against Corpus Christi.
Many of the downtown restaurants are adding staff as downtown Tulsa comes alive with baseball. The ball park is located at Greenwood and Archer. The area was once known as the Black Wall Street, prior to the 1921 Race Riot.
For the last 70-years the ball games have been played at the fairgrounds. Prior to that, however, the ball park was downtown.
The first pitch will be hurled by country music star Tim McGraw just ahead of his concert at the BOK Center. McGraw's father is the late Phillies pitcher Tug McGraw.
The game is sold-out.
