That sweet smell of spring means it is time for Dodgers baseball in Oklahoma City. The Dodgers first pitch of the home season is tonight against the fighting Express of Round Rock.
While this is the third season of OKC’s affiliation with the Dodgers, the metro’s history with minor league baseball stretches all the way back to at least 1903. Since changing AAA affiliation from the Astros to the Dodgers in 2015, the franchise has won two division titles and a conference championship.
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. Seeing the future stars of baseball at one of the best minor league ballparks in America, Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark, is why Dodger baseball is can’t miss fun.
