|| Bulls To Celebrate the Career of PA Announcer on Final Saturday
Bulls PA Announcer Bill Law will work his final game for the team this season. Fans & the entire Bulls family will honor him on Saturday, August 26th.
On Saturday, August 26th, the Bulls will officially recognize their longtime Public Address Announcer Bill Law for his 12 years as “The voice of the Durham Bulls.” In January, Law announced he was retiring from his public address duties with the Bulls following the 2006 season. Law, who has never missed a game at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park since it opened in 1995, will work his final game on the microphone for the Bulls at the team’s home finale on Thursday, August 31st.
“We will never find another announcer like Bill Law,” Durham Bulls General Manager Mike Birling said, “Bill’s legacy with the team will never be forgotten and his dedication is unmatched.”
Law’s career as PA announcer at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park covered a span of almost 1,000 games, including all Durham Bulls, USA Baseball, collegiate, high school and amateur games played at the stadium. Prior to 2006, Law had never missed a game on the microphone at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park.
Beginning in 2007, he will begin his new position with the Bulls serving as team ambassador. His duties will primarily focus on representing the team at community events and speaking to local civic groups throughout the year.
