(Tulsa-AP) -- Two former players and a long-time sportswriter are the newest members of the Tulsa Drillers' Wall of Fame.

Former Driller outfielder Sammy Sosa and pitcher Danny Darwin were joined by the late John Ferguson as the new members of the Wall.

Darwin was the winning pitcher in the Drillers' first-ever home game in 1977. Sosa is now with the Cubs, but his inside-the-park home run helped Tulsa win in his first game with the team in 1989.

Ferguson was the pro baseball beat writer for the Tulsa World for more than 30-years.
