Tulsa Time: 60 Second Interview With Reliever Sean Jarrett

Besides seeing the Tulsa Drillers play at ONEOK Field during the season, what do you really know about the 2011 Drillers players outside of the baseball setting? It is quite hard for Drillers fans to get to know the players throughout the year as the team is either on the road or in the midst of a long homestand.

Where is their favorite restaurant in Tulsa? Do you have a pre-game routine? Facebook or Twitter? These are just a couple of the questions we sat down and asked the players if they could answer.

However, during the interview each player would be allowed only one minute to answer all 17 questions.

A native of Westminster, Colorado, a suburb of Denver, Sean Jarrett is extremely familiar with the Rockies system.

Tulsa Drillers reliever Sean Jarrett is in his second year with the Drillers. Jarrett was selected by the Rockies in the 20th round of the 2006 First-Year Player Draft.

Besides growing up outside of Denver, Jarrett also attended Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma, which is also home to the Rockies Double-A affiliate Tulsa Drillers. 2011 will be Jarrett’s second year with the team as the reliever went 3-1, with a 1.80 earned run average in 2010. His 1.80 earned run average was good enough for second on the team.
