This summer the the Durham Bulls Athletic Park will play host to the 2014 Triple-A All-Star game on on July 16, but the festivities will kick-off on Saturday, July 12, with the All-Star Fan Fest and Block Party.
The Fan Fest will take place at the park from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., but we're interested in the Block Party from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. The Block Party will happen just outside the park on Blackwell Street and it will feature a set by The Baseball Project, which features Peter Buck and Mike Mills of R.E.M., Scott McCaughey and Steve Wynn of The Dream Syndicate. Oh, and the event is completely free. Check out more information HERE.
The Baseball Project just released a new album in March via Yep Roc Records titled 3rd. Check out the song "They Played Baseball" from the album below.
