Game Action in Tulsa, Ok

MY TAKE ON THE PARK

The pitch - Drillers Stadium, Tulsa, Ok

2009 will be the last for Drillers Stadium, the team will be moving to a new downtown ballpark next year. Over the past 30 years things must have changed an awful lot because this place doesn't need to be replaced, it may just need to be moved.

The pitch - Drillers Stadium, Tulsa, Ok.

Reminiscent of Joe Davis Stadium in Huntsville, Alabama, Drillers Stadium is a very large ballpark which doesn't seem to draw too well.
The lack of attendance could be because of its location. The park is located on the site of the State Fairgrounds, making it is a pretty easy
place to find but far away from the city center.

Looking in from the Home dugout, Tulsa, Ok

Upon arriving at Drillers Stadium a free parking lot awaits. A short walk through the lot takes you to the gate, where, like Beehive Field in New Britain,  you walk through a break in the fence to the park's
concourse.

A view of the stands from the stands- Tulsa

The concourse here has two concession areas both serving the same items.
The items here are all about $2 less than in Oklahoma City. For $3.75 they sell a Frito Pie which is Chili on top of a plate of Fritos, I
thought it was really good.

Stepping up to the plate, Tulsa, Ok

As for the game, the game is handled in a no frills type of way. The scoreboard gives basic information and the players statistics are not
updated during the game. Seating here is a little odd, there are two entrances to the seating area. You can walk down to the lower level with a small concourse but no way to get back to the upper level without going back up to the concourse and a separate staircase for the upper level.

Nightfall in Tulsa, Ok

I found one thing to see while here is the sign on the Men's Room door, "Designated Storm Shelter." Not the type of sign you see everywhere but one you should be aware of in the event of an emergency.

A place you don't think you will need until-Tulsa

I guess I know why they need to replace this park, it seems it just wasn't put in the right loacation.
Next year the Stadium will be in downtown, the prices will be higher, and the seats will most likely be green. But there was an atmosphere here on the outer edge of the city of Tulsa that I believe will be lost once the team moves to the downtown park.
