Eight Reasons to Come to the DBAP This Weekend
A huge weekend of Bulls baseball kicks off Thursday night at the DBAP. In case you needed an incentive to go, we got you covered.
1. Charlie Montoyo’s Return – Thursday, May 19
This offseason, former Durham Bulls manager and current Tampa Bay Rays third base coach Charlie Montoyo was inducted into the International League Hall of Fame. On Thursday, Montoyo will return to the DBAP for a Bulls game for the first time since he was promoted to Tampa Bay following the 2014 season. The team’s legendary skipper, who left a lasting impact on the Bulls and the community, will address the crowd pregame as the team celebrates his franchise-record 633 victories, Triple-A National Championship title, two IL Governors’ Cup titles and seven IL South Division crowns.
2. $1 Concessions – Thursday, May 19
Also on Thursday, come crush some hot dogs. Thursday’s game features $1 Concessions, so hot dogs, soda and popcorn are just a buck all night long. Shout out to anyone who crushes hot dogs like this:
3. Two Fireworks Shows – Friday, May 20 and Saturday, May 21
Fireworks on back-to-back nights. Whether you’re bringing the family out, looking for a date idea, or just love fireworks, we got the best. FIREWORKS FOR EVERYONE.
4. Two Diamond Cutters Performances – Friday, May 20 and Saturday, May 21
This weekend, the fellas are gettin’ down not just once, but twice. Will we be treated to a dazzling dance to Pitbull’s ‘Fun?’ Maybe the guys will inexplicably dance to ‘Whoomp There It Is.’ Or maybe we’ll see a classic like ‘Beat It.’ Regardless of what we see, we’re sure it’ll be… interesting.
5. Long Haul Bombers – Saturday, May 21
6. Bull City Blues Uniform Debut – Saturday, May 21
After a long wait, the Bulls will wear their Bull City Blues uniforms for the first time on Saturday, May 21. A tribute to the past, present and future of the City of Durham, the unis will be worn on all home Saturday games moving forward.
7. Wool E. Bull’s Birthday Party – Sunday, May 22
8. Kids Run the Bases – Sunday, May 22
We wrap the homestand Sunday night, when Kids Run the Bases. A billion kids running full speed around the DBAP infield. Yup, it’s as ridiculous as it sounds. Let’s hope no one gets trampled though.
