she's chasing dreams talking sports.
If you watched our vlog, you heard Matt was assigned to AA which is in Tulsa, Oklahoma!
Along with the vlog reveal, I thought it would be nice to write a post about the different places Matt will be playing during the season (granted no send downs or call-ups.)
The Tulsa Drillers are in the Texas League which has eight teams.
In the North Division with the Drillers include:
Arkansas Travelers (Mariners) – North Little Rock, Arkansas – Dickey-Stephens Park
Northwest Arkansas Naturals (Royals) – Springdale, Arkansas – Arvest Ballpark
Springfield Cardinals (Cardinals) – Springfield, Missouri – Hammons Field
In the Texas League South Division include:
Corpus Christi Hooks (Astros) – Corpus Christi, Texas – Whataburger Field (Fun fact: We took our engagement pictures there!)
Frisco RoughRiders (Rangers) – Frisco, Texas – Dr. Pepper Ballpark
Midland RockHounds (Athletics) – Midland, Texas – Security Bank Ballpark
San Antonio Missions (Padres) – San Antonio, Texas – Nelson W. Wolff Municipal Stadium
I did some research for our friends who always ask if Matt will be playing near a stadium close to them!
For our Dresden friends who might be interested in seeing Matt play, Dickey-Stephens Park in North Little Rock is right at four hours away (according to Google Maps which is the closest). The Drillers will be there several times throughout the season including: May 2-5, June 6-9, Aug. 3-6 and Aug. 22-25. For our Nashville friends, Dickey-Stephens Park is right at five hours away and is also the closest. (According to my research but it should be noted I am directionally challenged so I could be wrong.) (I realize this isn’t super close, but hey, just lettin’ you know the closest.)
For our South Texas friends, Matt and the Drillers will be playing at Whataburger Field against the Hooks for two series including May 26-28 and Aug. 8-10. I’m hoping to make it to at least one of those so I can see all of you! (With Grainger in tow to visit her old stomping grounds aka the Portland dog park)
You can also view the entire Driller schedule here.
The Drillers open the season on a six-day road trip. Opening Day at ONEOK Field (Drillers home field) is April 13, and I will be doing a tour vlog like I did of Camelback-Ranch!
Tulsa, here we commmmeeeeee!
