We’re closing out some seasons, opening others, and getting excited for some outdoor sporting shenanigans this April.

The Tulsa Drillers are back and better than ever at the ONEOK Stadium this month. You can catch them at home April 3, 9-14, 23-28 and 30. At the BOK Center, enjoy the last of the Tulsa Oilers’ hockey season, April 5 and 14. On the flip side, Tulsa Oilers’ football offers games at BOK on April 6 and 20. Stick around the concert hall for the Harlem Globetrotters on April 7 and Smoke and Guns IX on April 27. At the latter, Oklahoma firefighters and police officers box it out for charity. Other sporting events in Tulsa include the Oklahoma Buckskin’s Bloomin’ Blowout on April 6-7 at Expo Square, along with XFN 393 – an MMA and kickboxing match – at River Spirit Casino Resort on April 19. 

In Oklahoma City, you can visit Paycom Center for one of several OKC Thunder games this month, on April 9-10, 12 and 14. Additionally, visit RiverSport OKC on April 26-27 for Olympic team trials for events like canoeing, kayaking and slaloming. 

College baseball and softball heat up this month. At Norman’s Love’s Field, see the OU softball team play April 11-13 and 19-21. Sooner baseball can be found at L. Dale Mitchell Park on April 12-14, 23 and 26-28.
