Free Event Allows Fans to Take Batting Practice on Field, Select Seats for 2017 Season
The Durham Bulls will host their 2016 Fall Fan Fest presented by Delta on Saturday, Oct. 29 at Durham Bulls Athletic Park from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Fans will be able to take batting practice and play catch on the field, and arrive in costume for the chance to win prizes. Additionally, the Ballpark Corner Store will be having an end-of-season blowout sale.
In an effort to increase fan safety, two separate batting practices will be held at this year’s event. All attendees age 14 and older wishing to hit on the field will be able to do so from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m., while all fans 13 and under wishing to take batting practice may do so from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. Fans will not be allowed in the outfield until 12 p.m., at which point catch on the field will commence.
The Ballpark Corner Store, which will open at 10 a.m., will be hosting a yard sale with select merchandise marked down as much as 50 percent, while select fitted hats will be marked down as low as $10. Bulls ticket representatives will also be available to showcase available season ticket locations and provide tours of the exclusive PNC Triangle Club.
Other Fan Fest highlights include:
- A costume contest for the chance to win a variety of prizes
- Clubhouse tours running every 30 minutes
- Wool E. World and Playground 42 will be open
