Although some form of professional baseball has been played in Oklahoma City since pre-statehood days, last year marked the beginning of an era as Oklahoma City became the AAA affiliate of the historic Los Angeles Dodgers.
The Oklahoma City Dodgers got off to a quick start during their inaugural season by winning their division and going on a thrilling playoff run.
AAA baseball is a great way to enjoy Oklahoma springs with the family or friends while seeing some of the future stars of baseball. Recent All-Stars like Nelson Cruz, Chris Davis, R.A. Dickey, Adrian Gonzalez, Ian Kinsler and Carl Crawford are just a few to have spent time in OKC. Even Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg spent a couple of seasons in the metro.
