Bricktown Ballpark

Part of the original MAPS 1. The $34 mil project opened in early 1998 as the first of the MAPS projects to open, which began a shifting of public opinion in favor of downtown renewal. The ballpark seats just over 13,000 and is the home of the Oklahoma RedHawks AAA baseball team. It sits at Reno and Mickey Mantle Street in the heart of Bricktown, and features a plaza dedicated to Mickey Mantle. On the northwest side of the ballpark is a Coach's Sports Bar and a Hideaway Pizza.

Other than hosting the RedHawks, it plays host to Bedlam Baseball every year, the Big XII Baseball Tournament every year, major concerts, Bricktown's 4th of July, and other major events that bring thousands into Bricktown frequently.
