In the spring of 1979, Scott Glanz faced a tough choice: attend the University of Arkansas or join the Chicago White Sox's minor-league system. Scott opted for an education, though three years later another minor-league offer arrived, this time from the then-California Angels. He accepted it but spent most of his 2.5-year minor league career tending to an injured elbow.
Rather than spend his time wondering what if?, Scott brushed off the disappointment by training the next wave of major-league hopefuls at The Bullpen. Along with fellow coaches Randy Whisler and Jimmy Kremers, Scott imparts baseball fundamentals—such as hitting, fielding, and throwing—to first-timers at The Bullpen's Rookie School. Geared toward players of all skill levels, The Bullpen's other services include personalized private lessons, batting practice inside six cages, and plenty of strength-training equipment.

At the Pita Place, you might sit down to the same meal that the Iranian royal family once enjoyed. That’s thanks to owner Fred’s father, who passed down to his son the skills he acquired as a chef for the Iranian rulers. Now, Fred upholds family traditions with a menu of classic Middle Eastern and Mediterranean fare that has been lauded by Urban Tulsa and Tasty Tulsa. Chefs shave off hunks of slow-roasted gyro meat, and enfold falafel patties in warm pita bread. For dessert, they dish out a colder food—Persian ice cream, a blend of vanilla ice cream, pistachio, saffron, rose water, and sweet nothings borrowed from a local poet.
