— More than 200 middle school students from Durham earned straight As in the 2008-09 school year. As a reward, the students, in grades six through eight, got to eat lunch Wednesday at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park and run the bases.

Bulls mascot Wool E Bull presented each student with a certificate to mark the achievement.
