WHATABURGER FIELD
CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS
CORPUS CHRISTI HOOKS
USRT VISIT: September, 2007


You'll be hard pressed to find a nicer setting for baseball than Corpus
Christi's Whataburger Field. A fairly new building (2005) just on outskirts of
downtown, the stadium has an amazing view of the channel and bay and
signature Harbor Bridge. The architecture incorporates the city's long and
storied cotton industry, and even replicates actual old cotton gins and
warehouses in the outfield. Like its sister venue in Round Rock, fan
friendly amenities including rock climbing and a pool are all here. But
being so close to the border, everything is done here with a bit of a Mexican
flair!
 
ONEOK FIELD
TULSA, OKLAHOMA
TULSA DRILLERS
USRT VISIT: June, 2010


Tucked just along along the outskirts of downtown Tulsa, Oneok Field is
located adjacent to the historic Greenwood District, which was the home of
the "Black Wall Street" a century ago. Entrances to the venue work
seamlessly into the neighborhood, and this single concourse ballpark is
replete with pillars showcasing the players who made it to MLB, grand
entrances in the shape of oil derricks, and all the technological and
entertainment bells and whistles, along with a splendid view of the Tulsa
skyline.
 
ARVEST BALLPARK
SPRINGDALE, ARKANSAS
NORTHWEST ARKANSAS NATURALS
USRT VISIT: June, 2010


The one thing you will surely encounter when making your final approach
down the narrow road towards Arvest Ballpark is cows. Cows, cows and
more cows graze on the pretty and bucolic fields which surrounds this
baseball park, centrally located amidst the hot growth areas of Northwest
Arkansas. Limestone and stone facade, a gondola style suspended suite
deck and wide public spaces make for a pretty and functional ballpark.
