Montoyo Visits Durham for Reception
Bulls VP George Habel (l to r), local publisher Gary Tomlinson & Bulls Manager Charlie Montoyo celebrate Montoyo’s upcoming move to Durham.
The Bulls welcomed new field manager Charlie Montoyo at a ballpark reception that gave new meaning to the term “business casual.” The March 15, 2007, gathering was held in the Bulls clubhouse, a venue beneath the DBAP that is usually off-limits to fans. Guests were served hors d’oeuvres in the weight room, libations in the locker room and gathered in the home dugout for an exclusive field-level view of the diamond.
The evening reception was co-hosted by a new business networking group, Breakfast Club America. CBC is a charter member, and this was BCA’s first Durham event. Account Executives from all of CBC’s Raleigh broadcast divisions attended.
Montoya was joined by Mitch Lukevics, Director of Minor League Operations for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. Both men took a 24 hour break from spring training camp in St. Petersburg to visit Durham and introduce Montoyo to the business community.
