The Home Opener Approaches...

The excitement is palpable. We are closing in on our 2011 home opener. (And it was enjoyable watching the Rays clobber Boston last night on ESPN, 16-5.)

Meanwhile, the DBAP seems like a construction equipment showroom. Boom lifts, scissor lifts, forklifts are around every corner...as we prepare for Opening Night on Thursday.

The City of Durham is wrapping up a major maintenance project, and the Bulls are installing new awnings and signs. Painters and masons have been on the job during the off-season. There's new carpet and cabinetwork in the suites. Now, the power-washing and landscaping begins in earnest. It's down to the wire. That's how we roll.

...but our dedicated staff will be ready - at 5:59:59 PM on Thursday - just before the gates open at 6:00!

A benefit of my team sports vocation is the opportunity to start fresh each season. Join us Thursday (or this weekend) for our annual do-over...as we embark on 5.5 months of Durham Bulls baseball.

The WRAL TV5 WEATHER CENTER extended forecast is outstanding for the beginning of our nine-game home stand...
