For the first time ever, LEGO Systems, Inc. is launching a 15-market tour of Minor League Baseball stadiums across the country that will include a stop with the Tulsa Drillers and ONEOK Field. The LEGO Play Ball Tour offers baseball fans an interactive building experience perfect for families to enjoy together before the opening pitch as well as LEGO fun during the game itself.
Kicking off April 7 in Texas with a 3-day stand with the Round Rock Express, the LEGO Play Ball Tour will crisscross the nation for five months with stops at thirteen Triple-A and two Double-A Minor League Baseball stadiums. Each weekend residency will offer multiple opportunities for families to arrive early for playtime before enjoying "The National Pastime." Participation in LEGO Play Ball Tour is included with game admission.
The LEGO Play Ball Tour will be at ONEOK Field for the Drillers' two opening weekend home games of the season on Friday, April 14 and Saturday, April 15.
Each ballpark will designate an on-site play area where a LEGO play experience will set up interactive opportunities for kids to have fun before and during the game.
Activities on the LEGO Play Ball Tour include building tables for creative play, family challenges, photo opportunities with large-scale LEGO models, and a chance to build and launch your own LEGO creations down a race ramp. In addition, there will be giveaways, prizes, and special in-game LEGO content.
Vince Rubino, Event Marketing Manager for LEGO Systems, Inc. states, "The opportunity for families to enjoy both the affordable fun of a ball game and a free LEGO creativity experience is a total home run. We are excited to bring this new way to play to ONEOK Field and other stadiums across the country."
