Oklahoma City Redhawks – Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark
Oklahoma City was a blur but their ballpark was pretty good. Easily the most people we saw at a minor league on this entire trip but that could have been because it was a Friday night or because it was Fireworks night or because it was girl mascot bobblehead night. We left before the Fireworks but yeah, we got there with plenty enough time to get our girl mascot bobblehead.
I wanted Chris Carrington to take a picture with this UPS Buffalo (?) and he insisted on pretending to kick it. His eyes, however, are clearly focused on something else entirely.
Lots of history in this ballpark, perhaps most interesting of them all is this, the very first customers of the very first Dipping Dots, Ice Cream of the Future. These guys probably didn’t know they would be written about on a No Limit Records/Baseball Road Trip blog but then again they were the first consumers of a futuristic ice cream food so maybe they did. The original Ice Cream Men, uuuggggghhh.
Pattern destroyed. This is not a bird claw even though the Redhawks are birds.
The one damn giveaway we scored on this whole trip. I was expecting to fill my bookshelf with toys and memorabilia from baseball parks all over the mid-west but now I just have this thing.
(Ok, I’m actually really excited about Ruby)
Oklahoma City was a lot more fun than we expected. The baseball park area was cool, fans were cool, cool.
