Plans are in the works to say goodbye to a piece of Tulsa's history.

The old Drillers Stadium at 15th and Yale will be torn down in August.  

It's being used now by the Tulsa Athletics Soccer Team and they’re planning a farewell event this weekend.

They'll have special T-shirts for fans and a wall where people can leave their memories of the stadium.

"The place has housed a lot of memories both sports and non-sports,” owner Sonny Dalesandro said. “I've seen the Beach Boys, Garth Brooks, several shows here, as well as countless memories for myself and many other Tulsans."

Players also will wear pink jerseys for the annual breast cancer awareness night.
