Sunday, July 25 is Christmas in July at ONEOK Field and the Tulsa Drillers and the Salvation Army are teaming up to make it an evening to remember. Bell ringers with kettles will be at the gates. The giant Red Kettle of Love will be parked where kids can climb on it and their parents can drop in donations. The Drillers invited TSA to hold a toy drive during the game, so two toy barrels will be at every gate. Tulsa Drillers Promotions Assistant Justin Gorski said he appreciates the Salvation Army working with the Drillers. “The Salvation Army will make this event an amazing one!” Justin said. Captains Warren and Cindy Jones are in charge of volunteers and they’ve recruited friends from the Sapulpa Corps to help out. Lawn Maintenance Supervisor Rick Thompson is in charge of the giant kettle and the toy drive.
Did I forget to mention baseball? The Tulsa Drillers will be playing against the Arkansas Travelers Sunday night. The game starts at 6:05. Here’s some inside scoop from Justin: Tulsa will receive some major league help for its meeting with Arkansas on Sunday. Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki will play for the Drillers in the two games during an injury rehabilitation assignment as he recovers from a fractured wrist. Go Drillers!
