Red Sox Nation Invades Durham - Bid on Schilling!

EXCELLENT weather for the Bulls begin a four-game series with Pawtucket tonight. The Red Sox Triple A affiliate from Rhode Island attracts Boston fans from across the Triangle. Despite our South Division rivalries with the likes of Charlotte and Norfolk, this home stand against New England is our biggest draw.

Expect the headlines to be about pitching this weekend:
  • Former Tar Heel Andrew Miller will start against the Bulls on Friday night
  • Eight-year veteran Brandon Duckworth will pitch against us on Sunday
  • Former Brave Kevin Millwood will start on Monday
Plus, Darnell McDonald is down from Boston on rehab.

Sunday’s game will be televised on NESN in the northeast and Monday’s game will be broadcast on the MLB Network. Regional and national exposure for a baseball battle in the Bull City!

Speaking of the Red Sox, the Jim "Catfish" Hunter Chapter of the ALS Association is conducting an on-line auction that features this autographed Curt Schilling jersey and ball. Check it out; click here.

The Bulls donated the Schilling jersey to the auction.
