Tulsa Drillers

The Tulsa Drillers are the Double A affiliate of the Los Angeles Dodgers and play in the historic Texas League. The Drillers came to Tulsa from Lafayette, Louisiana prior to the 1977 season. They spent their first 26 years of existence in Tulsa as a Texas Rangers affiliate before joining the Colorado Rockies organization in 2003.

Fun Fact: Sammy Sosa played in 66 games for the Drillers in 1989, hitting .297 with seven homers and 31 RBI. He would go on to become one of the most prolific home run hitters in baseball during his 18-year big league career.
