We’re still waiting for the governor to declare the Thunder’s NBA title hopes a state of emergency, but the President and Derek Fisher have been dispatched to Oklahoma City in wake of last night’s loss to the Utah Jazz.
Maybe an aging, stationary, classy guard who just might be the NBA’s best non-superstar clutch shooter can save the day. But reports about a Fisher citing at the airport Wednesday and the local conversation about the merits of signing him definitely affirm something: This town’s obsession with the Thunder.
And into this swirl comes an email from the Oklahoma City RedHawks, tapping us on the shoulder today to remind us that baseball is still around. The RedHawks opened their ticket office at 9 a.m. Wednesday to begin selling single-game tickets for the 2012 season, Bedlam Series tickets and Big 12 tournament tickets.
Their pitch: affordable family entertainment and fresh air.
Admission will cost you $5 on the outfield lawn (the berm), $9 for third-base terrace (Friday-Sundays only), $11 for bleachers and $17 for field seats.
The Oklahoma-Oklahoma State Bedlam baseball series plays at the Brick on May 5-6. A little more pricey ($22, $17 and $13).
All-session and weekend passes to the Big 12 Baseball Championship May 23-27 are now available at the Brick box office. Here are those prices:
Club seats ($202)
Box seats ($117)
Reserved seats ($87)
Box seats ($87)
That’s a lot of baseball, and you can get it at the RedHawks Box Office on Mickey Mantle Drive, through Ticketmaster.com or by calling (800) 745-3000.
