BASF, Durham Bulls Form New Partnership

Leading Chemical Company Becomes Exclusive Life Sciences Company for 2018 Season

BASFBASF, one of the world’s leading chemical companies, is partnering with the Durham Bulls to become the team’s exclusive life sciences corporation for the 2018 Minor League Baseball season.

BASF has partnered with the Bulls’ Education Day promotions over the past two seasons, and will do so once again in 2018. Over the last two years, the organization has brought engaging, interactive exhibits to the DBAP such as Marbles Kids Museum, the NC Science Olympiad, the Museum of Life and Science and FIRST Robotics.

“BASF and the Durham Bulls share a similar focus on community investment,” said Paul Rea, Senior Vice President BASF Crop Protection North America. “Whether it’s through our STEM, agriculture, hunger relief or sustainability efforts, we believe we have an important role to play in our community. We’re excited to partner with the Durham Bulls team, and wish them the very best as they look to defend their Triple-A Championship title.”

“We are excited to partner with such an innovative company, and a company which has made engaging with the Triangle community such an important part of its business,” Bulls Assistant General Manager – Sales Chip Allen said. “2017 was an amazing year for the Bulls in many ways, and we look forward to a great 2018 season with BASF as our partner.”

The Bulls open the 2018 season on April 5 at Durham Bulls Athletic Park against the Charlotte Knights. Season memberships and group outings are available now at or by calling 919.956.BULL.
