New ONEOK Baseball Stadium

Molly and Willy are attending Vacation Bible School at St. Dunstans Episcopal church this week. I pick them up at noon and we go to Sonic for a burger and fries. Yesterday we visited the Golden Driller at Expo Square. Today we went to check out the progress on the new baseball stadium for the Tulsa Drillers. They are working hard on it. It is beginning to look like more than a big hole in the ground.

On the far right at the horizon is the back side of the buildings at Greenwood and Archer. Extending around to the left is part of Interstate 244. On the left are the risers for the media booths and luxury suites.

My understanding is that when you enter the stadium you will be looking down toward the field. General admission seating will be above on both sides with reserved and box seats below ground level and nearer to the field. I am standing at the fence that restricts the construction area just west of Elgin on Archer, looking north-ish. If I have this wrong please correct me with a comment.
