TULSA, OK -- The new home of the Tulsa Drillers is really coming along.

So far, builders say they are at about 25% of completion and are nearly finished with all concrete work.

The new ballpark is expected to be state of the art with top notch facilities and sports equipment.

Organizers say they believe it will bring big things to downtown.

"We don't want to thumb our chest, but we think this can be a real helpful catalyst to the downtown redevelopment in Tulsa and I think most Tulsans would agree and want to see downtown be successful so that all of Tulsa can be successful," said Chuck Lamson, Tulsa Drillers.

Organizers for the new ballpark say so far they are on time and on budget.
