Tampa Bay Devil Rays Owner Vince Naimoli, Rays General Manager Chuck Lamar, Capitol Broadcasting Company President/CEO Jim Goodmon and Durham Mayor Bill Bell will be in attendance to honor Bulls Manager Bill Evers, the winningest manager in Durham Bulls History. Complimentary food and drink will be offered to all fans at the celebration.
With his second International League Championship in as many years, Evers has accumulated one of the most impressive records of any manager in team and league history.
