Baseball is back: Durham Bulls home opener Monday

Posted April 8, 2013

— Baseball is back! After a few games on the road, the Durham Bulls will play their first home game of the 2013 season Monday night. 

The Bulls are taking on the Gwinnett Braves. The first pitch is at 6:05 p.m., and the gates open at 5 p.m. for lots of pre-game activities.

Wool E. Bull has a grand entrance planned. There will be full roster introductions and a ceremonial first pitch by North Carolina State Trooper Mike Potts, who was recently shot and seriously injured in the line of duty. Potts pitched for the Bulls in 1992. 

The National Anthem will be performed by the 100 Men in Black male chorus.

After the game, stick around for fireworks! 

The homestand will continue on Tuesday with the first AAA Membership Card Night of the year. Just show your AAA Membership Card and you can buy one terrace reserved ticket and get one free, courtesy of AAA Carolinas. AAA Membership Card Nights happen on every Tuesday home game. 

Tickets for all home games are available at, by phone at 919.956.BULL, or at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park box office.
