It's Opening Night for the Oklahoma City Dodgers and what better way to get things started than with a 3-time Cy Young Award winner on the mound. LA Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw is rehabbing from shoulder soreness, he's expected to go about four innings (or 60 pitches). We hear from OKC manager Travis Barbary and players Edwin Rios and Matt Beaty. Also Billy Donovan says he's "optimistic" about the Thunder closing the season strong by stringing together some wins, Paul George talks about Russell Westbrook's special night and OSU coach Mike Gundy says spring practice continues to go well.

Fans will have some new choices when it comes to ballpark food. Ever had a Mac and Cheese pizza?

The first pitch tonight is set for 7:05 if you can't make it to the ballpark you can hear the game on our sister station 1340 The Game with the voice of the Dodgers Alex Freedman.

The OKC Thunder did not play last night but they were still able to jump up out of 8th place in the West...the Spurs lost their game last night so that ,moved the Thunder into 7th place, a half game up on San Antonio. The Clippers were beaten by the Rockets so OKC gained a half game on the Clips and are one and a half games behind them for 6th place.

Spring football continues in Norman and Stillwater. OSU posted this update on how things are going so far.

In Norman, OU wide receiver Cee Dee Lamb told reporters he knew Jalen Hurts would be big time when they worked together at a high school football camp.

Opponents have been announced for next basketball season's Big 12-Big East challenge...The Oklahoma Sooners will go on the road to Omaha to play Creighton and OSU will host Georgetown.
