<BR/>I had a blast calling Bedlam Baseball Friday at Oneok Field.&#160; That is a well-done ballpark.&#160; It gives me the feel of the University of Tulsa&rsquo;s Reynolds Center, another of my favorite Oklahoma venues.</P>The Oak is not overdone with bells and whistles. &#160;Bells and whistles tend to break.&#160; &#160;Ballparks that are overdone tend to show their age more easily and not stand the test of time.&#160; The Oak, much like the Bricktown Ballpark, will be a field of dreams for several generations.</P>The open view of the Tulsa skyline outside of right field will only get better with time as the revitalization of the downtown area continues.</P>Over nine-thousand fans were witness to the first Bedlam game at Oneok, but if felt like much more than that.</P>&#160; </P>
