DBAP Draws Largest College Baseball Crowd in State History

Downtown Durham was especially hopping this past weekend.  With a berth in the ACC Baseball Championship Game on the line, North Carolina and NC State clashed in front of a paid attendance of 11,392 at Durham Bulls Athletic Park Saturday night, the largest crowd ever to watch a college baseball game in the state. The mark ranks second on the DBAP’s all-time attendance list, as the Durham Bulls and Gwinnett Braves played in front of 11,674 on July 4, 2010.

The previous collegiate baseball attendance record was set at the 2012 ACC Baseball Championship when the same two teams faced each other in the final at Greensboro’s NewBridge Bank Park.  10,222 fans saw the Heels edge the Wolfpack 4-0 in that game.

Tickets for Sunday’s ACC Baseball Championship Game between either North Carolina or NC State and the Hokies of Virginia Tech are on sale now at the DBAP box office, by calling 919.956.BULL, or online.
