Drillers Busy on the Field and Downtown

SAMUEL DEDUNO JOHNNY BOWDEN

Personnel of the Tulsa Drillers are staying busy on and off the field. The players are in the middle of a long baseball season. Management is busy out in the community doing social projects and lobbying for the downtown baseball stadium, which will open next April. It is supposed to be one of the nicest and modern baseball parks in the country. All this action is unusual and very exciting.

Team Manager Stu Cole was recently promoted to manage Triple A Colorado Springs. He was replaced my Ron Gideon, a 14-year Colorado Rockies organization coaching veteran.

On the downtown front, Drillers players, staff and management recently joined fans, the Metropolitan Environmental Trust and the City of Tulsa for a day of downtown beautification. Everyone lent a hand picking up litter and painting over graffiti.

Oneok Field is 25 percent complete, on schedule and on budget. Crews are working six days a week to keep it that way.

Oneok Field has been designed with the fans’ experience in mind. The stadium will have a concourse with a 360-degree view of the field. The grandstand offers a unique view of the Tulsa skyline and the outfield is designed to have a park-like atmosphere.
