The Durham Bulls will take on the Duke Blue Devils in the first-ever exhibition game between the two teams on April 4 at Durham Bulls Athletic Park. The 6:05 p.m. contest, presented by Groupon, will be the first chance to catch the 2017 Bulls roster before they open their season on the road against Gwinnett on April 6.

The nine-inning game will pit the DBAP's two residents against each other in a preseason tune-up for the Bulls, and a midseason exhibition game for the Blue Devils. Each team will use wood bats in the contest.

"We're extremely excited for this matchup with our partners from Duke," Bulls General Manager Mike Birling said. "It should be a fun night of baseball as our team gets ready for the season, while providing some good in-season competition for the Blue Devils."

All tickets for the contest are priced at $10 plus tax, and can be purchased here, the Frontier Communications Ticket Office or by calling 919.956.BULL.
