Walk toward the light!

I had a semi-spiritual experience Monday afternoon roaming around the ballpark. I encountered this blinding light atop the dugout stairs.

I slowly climbed the concrete staircase...step-by-step...out of the darkness...drawn to the light...

...only to find Bulls Head Groundskeeper Scott Strickland mowing the grass. That was a bit of a letdown, but the field is gorgeous.

Stadium Journey, a magazine/website that visits and rates stadia worldwide, places the Durham Bulls Athletic Park at NUMBER TWO among the thirty Triple-A clubs. The rankings were just released. Check out their report; click here.

Earlier this year, based on SJ's 2011 site visits, the DBAP was ranked #8 among all Minor League venues and 51st best stadium among all sports facilities. That's based on 800 reviews across 18 countries from 60 correspondents. Whoa!

Walk toward the light(s)!
Opening Night is Thursday, April 5th.
