All Single Ladies. Hey gals — what is better than a group of your best friends watching the Tulsa Drillers flex those muscles as they run bases at ONEOK Field, 201 N. Elgin Ave? How about free hand care and massages while cheering those Drillers on against the Frisco RoughRiders. Every Monday is “Girls Night Out” at ONEOK Field, so hit up the new ballpark for some nachos and a nice backrub. It’s the last game of the team’s six-game home stand, too. The game starts at 7:05pm, and the team takes on the Frisco Roughriders. Ticket prices vary, so visit tulsadrillers.com to purchase tickets.
