The Durham Bulls will take on the Tampa Bay Rays in a spring exhibition game next year, the Bulls announced today. The game will either be April 2 or 3 at Durham Bulls Athletic Park.
The Bulls and Rays also have extended their player-development contract through 2014. The current PDC ends after 2010.
Durham also released its 2010 schedule and -- in Rickwood Classic style -- will return to its ancestral grounds for one game. Durham Athletic Park, made famous by the movie "Bull Durham" and home to the Bulls from 1940-94, will host Durham's game with the Toledo Mud Hens on May 10.
