“Such a great venue”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

The DBAP is such a great place to kick back and enjoy a baseball game. It has been recently renovated and it even better. There are a ton of choices for food and drink and plenty of things to entertain the kids. It is a small enough stadium that every seat has a great view of the field, but it big enough to have some great entertainment and people watching. It is a must see for a tourist.

“What a great little ballpark! (Not to mention the movie)”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

Caught a Durham Bulls game on a business trip--for $10 I got to watch high quality baseball in a clean, beautiful stadium, under the canopy (in case it rained). Beer and peanuts were reasonable, the people good natured and only a $9 cab ride from the Washington Duke Inn. Downtown Durham has come a long way, though it is still a little rough around the edges, but the ballpark area is just fine!

“An intimate experience”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

I've had a great time and tons of fun each time I get a chance to attend a game at DBAP. Winning the game is just icing on the cake. The stadium is very manageable and you really feel like you're part of the action. I've been to Wrigley Field and that felt like being lost in a swirl of activity where the game is of secondary importance. There's a lot going on at DBAP besides the game, but not so much as to be overwhelming.

“Nice Ballfield”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

Loved the ballpark. Seats were good and the staff was awesome. Food was reasonably priced. Entertainment between innings was great! Enjoyed being downtown could walk to the Marriott where I stayed.

“Minor League baseball but a Major League experience”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

This was my first experience of baseball at this level and it measured up to my Major League visits in every way. The ticket was inexpensive, my seat was excellent, the food was tasty, the team store offered a wide variety of merchandise, Wool E Bull is an entertaining mascot, the backdrop to the stadium of renovated tobacco factories and warehouses is atmospheric, and it was only a 5-minute walk from my city centre hotel. Even the weather was perfect!
If only the Bulls hadn't lost heavily...
