FORREST FIRM RENEWS DURHAM BULLS SPONSORSHIP
April 2, 2014
A national institution in minor leagues, the Durham is the class AAA affiliate of the American League Tampa Bay Rays of Major League Baseball. The club plays in the International League, along with affiliate clubs of the Boston Red Sox, the New York Yankees, and others, with the Bulls taking four league titles in the last 12 years. The Bulls hold a special place in the hearts of Triangle residents, as evidenced by the team routinely topping Minor League Baseball’s attendance records at the newly-renovated Durham Bulls Athletic Park (DBAP).
The 2014 season, marking the second consecutive year of sponsorship support by the Forrest Firm, will be a special one, as the club will hosts the AAA All-Star game and fans enjoy the park’s multiple renovations. The club has done a huge makeover on the DBAP, with a completely new playing surface and the replacement of the stadium’s seats. In addition, the club has installed a huge HD screen on the famed Blue Monster wall in left field, coupled with a completely overhauled sound system.
The PNC Triangle Club, the crown jewel of the club’s renovations to the DBAP, is a new 5,000-square foot elite club level experience directly behind home plate. The team has also added new picnic areas, concessions, and an upgraded lighting system to complete the most comprehensive renovation in the history of the club.
The Forrest Firm remains committed to supporting the Bulls, with the sponsorship package featuring a prominent sign in the centerfield area above the scoreboard.
“The Bulls are a symbol for everything good about living and working in Durham and the Triangle,” stated Forrest. “The DBAP and the rest of the American Tobacco Campus anchored the revitalization of downtown Durham nearly two decades ago, and they now stand as centerpieces of a thriving community. I personally enjoy attending games with my wife and children, and it’s great to know the support from the Forrest Firm and other corporate partners enables the club to provide a great experience for many area families.”
The Bulls open the 2014 International League season with an eight-game home stand featuring two four-game series against the Gwinnett Braves and Charlotte Knights.
