Apart from the many acts that have played here since it was built as part of the MAPS program, the Ford Center is now the home of the Oklahoma City Blazers, the CHL champs of many of the past 12 years. When the Blazers are not playing, you might see such acts as Cher, Tim McGraw, ZZ Top, or even the Xtreme Cyclists playing to packed houses in the ultra-high ceilings of our newest venue.
Bricktown Ballpark is one of the premier minor league ballparks in the country. Not only is it the home of the Oklahoma Redhawks baseball club, but it also hosts many regional baseball events, including the Big XII baseball tournament for college baseball every year and other regional playoffs.
Surrounding the ballpark are statues of some of OKC's hometown ball players, such as Mickey Mantle, Johnny Bench, and Roy Munson. The ballpark is open for baseball games, but it also hosts other events like a winter bobsled event when we were here in December. We also made use of the facilities to host a customer event that was catered and took advantage of the suites upstairs.
Overall, I would recommend checking the events schedule when you are headed to OKC.
Formerly the one venue in Oklahoma City for music acts, hockey games and basketball tournaments, the Cox Business Services Convention Center (once known and still popularly called "the Myriad) has been refurbished as part of the MAPS program, but its future as a venue is highly in doubt after the construction of the Ford Center. As its name implies, conventions might find their agendas better suited in the reconstructed corridors inside.
