I grew up going to major league baseball, and really enjoy going to minor league ball in the DBAP. The stadium was renovated over the winter and it really adds to the experience. And who knows, you might see a star before he gets called up to the majors!

Minor league baseball played with all the foibles of those not yet or past the big league. Reasonable admission and food prices including of course local beers. Famous as the site of the movie "Bull Durham"

The remodeled ball park is very nice. Great food, too. However, watch out for the foul balls - they BANG on the roof of the stadium. Bring money for food and drink. Parking in the garages is easy and cheap.

Taking a family to the big leagues is both expensive and chaotic, whereas at this venue, all seats are good ones, the park is in a convenient location (Downtown) with inexpensive parking, and there is a nice selection of food and beverage both inside and outside the venue; they even have veggie dogs. I found it to be a pleasant... More

OK, this is better than the pro fields. It seems like these guys try harder. The new stadium is great, and the location is good. The security when the games are going one really makes you safe and I really like this when I get the chance to go.

I am a fan of our Durham Bulls! I prefer to go to minor league games! These kids on the Durham Bulls want to play the game and they want to win! I haven't been to a game lately but I intend to see some this season. The Bulls have done quite well in the last few years...last year they... More

Attended the Bulls' opening weekend on Saturday and had a ball! (No pun intended!) It was the first time I'd visited the DBAP since it opened and I was amazed at what I've been missing. It was terrific. It's a beautiful ballpark to begin with and has gone through a renovation which has made it even better. One such new... More

This is a great minor league park. There are few bad seats. Expect to pay major league prices for the beer and peanuts. They do a lot to engage the fans and their kids. I enjoyed the game and people watching.

Spring and Fall are the best times to go there. One of the nicest ballparks in the country. There is no bad seat, it is clean, plenty of parking, and a variety of food venues in and around there. Fun for the family, or with a group of friends, or a mother-son trip!
