DBAP set to host Triple-A title game

Posted September 18, 2012

— Garner native and “American Idol” winner Scotty McCreery will be back on the diamond in Durham Tuesday evening to throw out the first pitch of the Gildan Triple-A National Championship Game between the Pawtucket Red Sox and Reno Aces.

The game will be televised on NBC Sports Network, with veteran broadcaster George Grande handling play-by-play duties alongside longtime Major League pitcher Jim Kaat. Weather permitting, Tuesday’s first pitch from the Durham Bulls Athletic Park is scheduled for 7 p.m. Triple-A championship banquet Triple-A championship banquet

Pawtucket advanced to the one-game, winner-take-all final by downing the Charlotte Knights in the International League Championship series. The Red Sox, top affiliate of the Boston Red Sox, went 79-65 in the regular season before winning their first Governor’s Cup since 1984.

Reno topped the Omaha Storm in the Pacific Coast League Championship series and finished 81-63 in the regular season. The Aces will serve as the home team during Tuesday’s game thanks to the Pacific Coast League’s win in the Triple-A All-Star game this summer.

The Red Sox and Aces were on Duke’s campus Monday night to hear from Blue Devil head coach Mike Krzyzewski, who talked to the teams about his experience winning four NCAA basketball titles.

“Both of you are championship level teams, but to win a national championship, you become part of a brotherhood that lasts forever,” Krzyzewski said. “It’s a championship brotherhood.”

Tickets for Tuesday’s game are available at DurhamBulls.com, by phone at 919-956-2855 or in person at the DBAP ticket office.

On top of his first pitch duties, McCreery will perform “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” during the 7th inning stretch.
