The ACC Baseball Championship annually features many of the nation’s top-ranked teams. The ACC placed seven teams in the 2014 NCAA Tournament field, and a total of 18 ACC squads have reached the College World Series over the past nine seasons. Six teams enter the 2015 season ranked in Baseball America’s Top 25, more than from any other conference.
“The Durham Bulls have shown a terrific commitment to the league, our schools and our fans with the numerous enhancements to the park,” said ACC Commissioner John Swofford. “The support of not only the Bulls, but the entire City of Durham, has been outstanding. Our schools had a desire to find a home for the ACC Baseball Championship and we have found a superb one in Durham and the DBAP for the next four years.”
The ACC Baseball Championship has been held in Durham eight times previously, including three of the past five years. In 2013, tournament records for single-game attendance (11,329) and championship game attendance (8,697) were set. The 2013 championship drew 58,454 fans, the fourth highest total in league history.
