Durham Bulls Opening Day

The Durham Bulls return home to the Durham Bulls Athletic Park after starting their 2015 season with six games on the road.  So far the Bulls are 3-3 on the new season under brand new manager Jared Sandberg.  Considering they have already had a few roster moves made this season, Mikie Mahtook and Allan Dykstra have been called up to Tampa, I am really happy with the early results.  

Tonight's Home Opener at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park should be fun.  The Bulls have made some great changes around the stadium off the field, along with some new players on the field, and I will share a few of the changes when I get to the stadium in a few hours.   The lineup is set, the tickets are printed, should be a fun summer.  Go Bulls!

The Bulls 2015 Opening Day lineup features four players who appeared for the Bulls prior to this season.  Vince Belnome returns for his third season in the Durham lineup and has been a fixture in the early going in the second spot in the lineup.  Curt Casali and Luke Maile, two catchers, also return.  Sandberg has been doing well at getting both players at bats and chances to catch as well.  Tonight Casali starts at catcher and Maile gets the nod at DH a night after hitting his first Triple A home run.  Ha Ju Lee also returns to the Bulls lineup.  The slick fielding short stop is hoping to find his touch at the plate.  He's had a slow start, but had a pair of hits against Charlotte last night.
