Statistics and designers headline the news about the Durham Bulls this week.

In other Bulls news, the ballpark has something in common with the soon-to-open National Museum of African-American History and Culture in Washington, DC: an architect. Durham architect Phil Freelon led the design group who created the museum; he also helped design the Durham Bulls Athletic Park.
The museum is the only national museum dedicated to documenting African-American life, history and culture. It’s set to open on September 24th.
