Drillers Stadium will again be hosting more than Texas League Baseball this spring. It has been announced that the annual Bedlam Battle and the High School Showcase will both be played at the stadium again this year.

Drillers Stadium will host game one of the three-game Bedlam Series between the Oklahoma Sooners and the Oklahoma State Cowboys on Friday, May 16. First pitch is scheduled for 7:35PM.

Individual tickets for the popular Bedlam game will go on sale on Saturday, March 22 at the Drillers Stadium Ticket Office and at TULSADRILLERS.COM. Tickets prices will be $15.00 for Box Seats, $12.00 for Reserved Seats and $10.00 for Upper Reserved Seats. Reservations are currently being taken for group purchases of 25 or more tickets.

The High School Showcase is a two-day event that will feature a pair of doubleheaders involving eight different high school teams. All four games will be televised live by Cox Communications on cable channel 3.

The Showcase will begin on Thursday, April 17, with game one featuring Holland Hall against Cascia Hall at 5:00PM. In game two at 7:30PM, Sand Springs will play Sapulpa.

Day two of the Showcase on Friday, April 18 will feature Jenks versus Union in the 5:00PM game and Broken Arrow versus Owasso in the 7:30PM game.

"We are excited to continue our relationship with high school baseball," said Drillers Director of Tickets Mark Hilliard. "Now in its fourth year, the High School Showcase not only gives these high school players the chance to play in a professional stadium, it also increases the exposure for the great level of baseball that is played at high schools in the state of Oklahoma. The involvement of Cox Communications will only increase that exposure."

All seating for the high school doubleheaders will be general admission with tickets priced at $5.00 each. The tickets will be available through the Drillers Ticket Office and through each of the participating schools beginning on March 22. Ticket revenue from the showcase will be split among the participating schools.
