Tulsa Drillers Manager Ryan Garko visited ONEOK Field for the first time on Jan. 26 to meet with media members about the Drillers’ upcoming season. He will share his thoughts about the club’s outlook for its second season as a Los Angeles Dodgers affiliate.

For Garko, the 2016 season will mark his first job as a manager in professional baseball. The first baseman and outfielder enjoyed a 10-year professional playing career, spending parts of six seasons in Major League Baseball with the Cleveland Indians, San Francisco Giants and Texas Rangers.

The Stanford University product moved into coaching when he accepted an assistant’s position with his alma mater prior to the 2014 collegiate season.

The Drillers are slated to open the 2016 Texas League season on Thursday, April 7 in Corpus Christi. The home opener is scheduled for the following week when Tulsa hosts the Hooks at ONEOK Field on Thursday, April 14.
