On August 6th, Coastal representatives joined the Durham Bulls in presenting the winners of the 2019 Durham Bulls Ballpark Project. Four organizations were selected to each receive a $10,000 grant for renovations to community baseball or softball facilities.  This year's recipients are: 

  • East Wake High School Softball 
  • Hawfields Civitan Club
  • Hillandale Sports Association
  • Northern Middle School 

Following the on-field presentation of the winners, Coastal's VP of Communication Joe Mecca joined Bulls play-by-play announcer Patrick Klinas on the air to talk about the program.  

“One thing that stood out to us in the grant requests was the passion that players and volunteers have about providing a safe place for their teams and their opponents to play," said Mecca.  "We heard a resounding ‘we just want to be proud of the field we call home.’ We love that the Durham Bulls are providing opportunities to make that happen, and we’re happy to support it again this year.”
