We have a new site for the Triple-A Championship Game pitting the International League champ against the Pacific Coast League champ: Durham Bulls Athletic Park will host the 2012 match.
The game is scheduled for Durham Bulls Athletic Park on Sept. 18, 2012, and will be broadcast live on Versus.
It is the first time a Triple-A Championship Game has been played east of the Mississippi River since the 1983 Triple-A World Series in Louisville, Ky. The 2011 game will be played at Isotopes Park, home of the PCL’s Albuquerque Isotopes.
“It’s a tremendous honor for Triple-A Baseball to select Durham as the first International League city to host this amazing event,” said Durham Bulls General Manager Mike Birling. “The revitalization of Downtown Durham is something that needs to be showcased to the entire country, along with the rich baseball tradition here in the Triangle.”
The Triple-A National Championship also serves as a gathering for the leaders from all 30 Triple-A teams, who attend for the joint International League-Pacific Coast League meetings.
