Scotty McCreery to Headline National Championship Game

Along with baseball, folks usually mention apple pie, but country music fits right in there with the list of things, too.  Fortunately, for those who love baseball and country music, there is an upcoming event that is tailor-made. Apple pie fans may have to go to one of Durham's fine restaurants to satisfy their craving, however.

The Durham Bulls today announce Scotty McCreery will headline festivities at the 2012 Gildan Triple-A National Championship Game at the DBAP on Tuesday, September 18. The country music superstar will throw out the game’s ceremonial first pitch and perform “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” during the 7th Inning Stretch.

McCreery, a native of Garner, NC, was crowned the winner of the tenth season of American Idol in 2011. He has since become one of country music’s brightest young stars, selling over a million copies of his debut album Clear as Day.  Now enrolled at North Carolina State University, McCreery is an avid baseball fan, having played on the Garner High School baseball team.

The 2012 Gildan Triple-A National Championship Game is a one-game, winner-take-all showdown between the champions of the International and Pacific Coast Leagues. Durham is the first International League city to host Minor League Baseball’s premier event, which will be nationally televised on NBC Sports Network. 

Tickets for the 2012 Gildan Triple-A National Championship Game at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park on September 18th are available online, by phone at 919.956.BULL, or in person at the DBAP ticket office.
