The Colorado Rockies will be making an additional stop during Spring Training 2011: the MLB parent has scheduled an exhibition game against farm team Tulsa Drillers (Class AA; Texas League) at ONEOK Field on March 30.
It will be the second-ever appearance for the Rockies in Tulsa, but their first at ONEOK Field. Colorado faced the Drillers prior to the start of the ’03 season to mark the beginning of the affiliation between the two teams.
“We are thrilled to be able to host the Rockies at ONEOK Field,” said Drillers General Manager Mike Melega. “Colorado is one of the most exciting and entertaining teams in Major League Baseball, and we are proud of the fact that so many former Drillers are on the team’s roster. This game presents a convenient opportunity for fans to watch major league stars in action.”
The game will begin at 6:05 p.m.
