Drillers in MiLB Promotional Headlines Again

It’s that time of the week again to give you guys and gals a heads up on the promotions for the upcoming homestand against Springfield. Tuesday, the Drillers were also included in Ben Hill’s Promo Preview of the week. Here is Hill’s take on Pineapple Palooza the Drillers will be hosting April 20th:


Tulsa Drillers (Texas League)
Pineapple Palooza, April 20

Wednesday is 4/20, a date on the calendar long associated with the celebration of a mind-altering substance: its National Pineapple Upside-Down Cake Day! The Drillers are marking the occasion with a full-on “palooza,” a designation that easily outranks “fest,” “party,” “shindig” and even “blowout” in the American lexicon. The evening will be highlighted by the “Pineapple Olympics,” featuring events such as golf, shot put and, most harrowing, smoothie chugging. The winners receive pineapple-related prizes (a fitting conclusion to any fruit-ful endeavor), leaving the losers with Dole-ful expressions on their faces.



Also on the official Ben Hill Blog, he has discovered a recent picture of Hornsby. Hill is quickly to proclaim the picture as “One of the greatest mascot photos of All-Time”.


Tulsa Drillers mascot Hornsby decided to take a "dive", during his weekend off last week.




Wednesday, April 20 . . . . . . Springfield Cardinals (7:05PM) – Gates Open at 6:00PM


The unofficial definition for “palooza” is, an all-out crazy party; partying at one place with a ton of people like there’s no tomorrow. Today is National Pineapple Upside down Cake day; and the Drillers invite you to come celebrate all things pineapple with us!
