Fan fun

Fans young and old got the chance to take in the Durham Bulls Athletic Park in a new way on Saturday.

Instead of sitting in the stands taking in a ball game, the fans were able to get on the diamond and see the view many of their favorite players get the chance to see. The All-Star Fan Fest kicked off a week of events at the park leading up to Wednesday’s All-Star Game. It also allowed fans to get a up-close look at the facilities and even take on an animated Billy Hamilton in a race to steal a base.
