A Drillers game was enough to bring smiles to faces.
Fans bonded over baseball. The partnership, for now is a test run. A chance to see if hanging out is a good fit.
"I have never been to a baseball game before,” said Avyon Walker.
Big Brothers and Big Sisters arranged everything on Sunday and dozens participated “Big for a Day."
"Right here in Tulsa, we see a lot of youth who need that positive impact,” said Brian Carr.
Carr recruits for Big Brothers and Big Sisters.
“We have a big need here in the Tulsa area,” said Carr. “We have almost 150 kids on our waiting list. Almost 100 of them are boys."
"We've got a lot of great people around this city, and if they can spend a little time, it makes a difference," said Mayor Dewey Bartlett.
Mayor Bartlett said that's why he's participating.
"My mother is really happy that I have someone to hangout with," said 12-year-old, Brittan.
Walker wasn't much of a talker, but he told us about the importance of his relationship with his big.
"We do lunch, and special activities with each other,” said Walker.
All of it gives him and any child who participates, a chance to see there's more out there for them.
