Good Morning From Durham, NC

Posted in College Baseball, Not in New York on May 14, 2011 by EAST SIDE RYNO

This weekend, I am in Durham, NC for the Duke – Wake Forest baseball series. Last night, the Deacs took the first game of the series 7-2 and will look to take the series with a win today at noon. The series is being playing at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park, a beautiful state of the art Triple-A ball park located in downtown Durham. By far, this is the nicest minor league ballpark I’ve ever seen. Even though the park is 15 years old, they’ve done many renovations in the last three years making the park look brand new. I know a lot of you are going to hate me for this, but I’m not a big fan of “Bull Durham” (too much sex, not enough baseball). This isn’t the same stadium where the movie was filmed, but they still have the “Hit Bull Win Steak” sign over the fence. Here are some pictures from this weekend at the ball park plus a classic scene from “Bull Durham.”
