AT&T Bricktown Ballpark - Oklahoma City

MY TAKE ON THE PARK

Bricktown Ballpark from LF

Bricktown Ballpark - Oklahoma City

Oklahoma City was a complete surprise to me. The ballpark is located in the Bricktown area of Oklahoma City, complete with canals and restaurants making a trip the Bricktown Ballpark an event more than just a trip to a ballgame.

Getting to the game is pretty easy, located a few blocks off the Interstate there is sufficient parking, $10 closest to the park and down to $5 if you walk a few blocks.  The brick exterior blends in with the theme of the area. There are two entrances, both honoring local legends. At home plate to the Johnny Bench entrance and down third is Mickey Mantle. There are also busts outside the park of famous Oklahoma City residents, Bobby Murcer had just passed away and there was a Navy blue and whit wreath around his, a classy and touching display.

Once inside, standard new two level old time ballpark.  A very wide concourse awaits with various concessions, all offering standard ballpark fare. I tried the chili dog and aside from being messy was only average tasting. To mu surprise, a Game Program is not offered here. Neither given away or to be purchased. In place an informative game notes packet is handed out. Standard press kit which told me all I needed to know about the Redhawks.

Once the game was underway, the game was handled very well here. A quick scoreboard along with an Australian PA Announcer who kept between inning promotions flowing and upbeat. Considering there was a pretty sparse crowd, the game staff all seamed into the game and making sure all had a good time.

Visiting a ballpark on the final game of the season offers some interesting dilemmas. Generally the staff is more anxious for the game to get over than a team at the end of a two week road trip. That being said, a trip to see the Redhawks is highly recommended, a large comfortable ballpark where the game comes first.

As an aside, there are other areas of Oklahoma City to visit aside from the park. The Bricktown area is fun for the restaurants, the canals, and the live music. But there is also the Memorial which is an important place to visit. Not a fancy tourist attraction but a place that really should be seen.
