The Northwest Arkansas Naturals will open the 2024 season with a three-game series against the Tulsa Drillers this weekend at Arvest Ballpark.

The series opens at 7:05 p.m. Friday, April 5, followed by a post-game fireworks show. Opening night ceremonies will also include a teacher recognition ceremony, honoring 10 local teachers nominated by their school district.

Game two is at 6:05 p.m. Saturday, and will also end with fireworks. The third game of the series is at 2:05 p.m. Sunday, and will conclude with a free kids snack giveaway and the annual Kids Run the Bases event.

The Naturals will be wearing their new-look uniforms and caps for the 2024 season.

The team has been affiliated with the Kansas City Royals since 2008 when the program was relocated from Wichita. The program has since contributed 101 players to the Royals, including members of the 2015 World Series Championship team.

The Tulsa Drillers are the Double-A affiliate team of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
