On July 18, a great turnout of Duke postdocs and families watched the Durham Bulls play the Pawtucket Red Sox at the Bulls stadium. This annually returning family friendly outing featured dollar concession night at the ballpark with cheap hotdogs, fries and popcorn, of course on a really hot mid-summer’s night! To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the movie Bull Durham, there was even a race of the movie’s main characters.
On Aug 17, DUPA will organize a trip to a game from the Carolina Railhawks. Subscribe to the postdoc list for more news!
