Free Event Gives Fans Opportunity to Meet Rays Outfielder Jerry Sands, Take Batting Practice on Field
The Durham Bulls will host their annual Fall Fan Fest on Saturday, October 18, 2014. The free event will take place from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Durham Bulls Athletic Park. Tampa Bay Rays outfielder and Smithfield, NC native Jerry Sands will be on hand to sign autographs and fans will be able to take batting practice and play catch on the field.
Entry to Fall Fan Fest is free with the donation of three canned food items, which will be contributed to the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina. With that donation, fans will be entered into a raffle to win a Trick-or-Treat outing with Wool E. Bull, where the team’s beloved mascot will accompany the winning family on a Halloween trip through their own neighborhood.
Sands, who appeared in 54 games with the Bulls this past season before a June call-up to Tampa Bay, will be signing in the PNC Triangle Club from 10:00 a.m. until 11:30 a.m.
The Ballpark Corner Store will be hosting a yard sale with some merchandise marked down as much as 50%. Never-before-available game worn jerseys, pants and helmets will be on sale and jersey/shirt personalization will be half off. Bulls ticket representatives will also be available to showcase available season ticket locations and provide tours of the exclusive PNC Triangle Club. Any fan who purchases a 2015 full or half season ticket plan during Fall Fan Fest will receive a copy of the limited edition Bull City Summer fine art book, which retails for $49.95.
The Durham Bulls open the 2015 International League season on the road on April 9 before returning to the DBAP for their home opener on Wednesday, April 15. Full season, mini-plan, and group ticket packages for the 2015 season are available now. For more information, visit durhambulls.com, the DBAP ticket office or call 919.956.BULL.
