Raleigh Sports Council Visits Durham

The Greater Raleigh Sports Council ventured to Durham last month for its quarterly luncheon at the American Tobacco complex and an exclusive, on-field batting practice session with Bulls manager Bill Evers. Baseball was, of course, the theme. Downtown Durham not only boasts the Bulls, but the city is headquarters for USA Baseball and Baseball America.

Panel
Luncheon speakers (l to r) were Allan Simpson, editor-in-chief of Baseball America; Paul Seiler, CEO of USA Baseball; retired major league pitchers Paul Shuey and  Greg Harris, both live in Wake County.
