TULSA, Oklahoma -

Tulsa is ranked number four in the Top 10 Minor League Markets, according to Sports Business Daily. The Tulsa Regional Chamber of Commerce announced the city's ranking in a news release Tuesday.

"Tulsans should feel pride that our support of our sports teams have continued to make Tulsa a great market for Minor League teams," the release states.

The sports website lists the Texas League Tulsa Drillers, Tulsa Oilers and Tulsa Roughnecks, in their survey.

"The Class AA Drillers are in their sixth season at ONEOK Field and have been one of the top draws in the Texas League the last few years, including a club record for attendance in 2014 at 415,223," the article states. The Oilers hockey team drew its best attendance since the mid-90s last season with 202,948.

Soccer fever is growing with the Roughnecks, but hoops are not doing so well, SAD notes. They cite the Shock's move to Arlington, Texas in drawing that conclusion.
