With April comes baseball season and Mr. Marsocci’s passion for the Durham Bulls. Coming off a tremendous season of winning the International League Championship (but losing the AAA “World Series” to the Memphis Redbirds), the Durham Bulls are hoping to do even better this year. However, the loss of Manager and head coach Jared Sandberg to the Seattle Mariners means anything can happen. Thankfully, the Bulls AA affiliate Montgomery Biscuits have given up their manager Brady Williams to take over for the Bulls.
While everyone is proud of our local champions, the same Durham Bulls experience promises to excite and entertain the fans whether the team wins or loses in 2019. “We have loved every game we’ve been to, whether the Bulls win or lose,” Jeff said. “Obviously, we are happier when the Bulls win, but we’re going to be loyal fans no matter how things turn out this year. We’re looking forward to seeing our fellow season ticket holders, the regular friendly staff members, and especially Wool E. Bull.”
The Durham Bulls regular home season starts on Thursday, April 11 with a 6:35 p.m. game against the Columbus Clippers, and the season ends on September 2 (Labor Day) with an afternoon game against the Gwinnet Stipers. “Kathy and I are looking forward to being at every game we can,” Jeff said.
