Fan Fest

...was a remarkable success given the soggy weather. We had 850 people visit the Durham Bulls Athletic Park on Friday and Saturday.

After Friday's rain, the staff assumed GM Mike Birling would cancel Saturday's session. Not! Our fearless (stubborn) leader refused to be a victim of the weather forecast, and he pulled it off.

It is gratifying - and a very positive sign for the future of baseball - to have so many families with young children visit the they enjoy a rare "play date" on Durham's field of dreams.
