DURHAM BULLS COULD STAMPEDE THEIR WAY TO CLASS AAA
Published June 29, 1995
The Class A Durham Bulls are "interested" in landing a AAA franchise, according to the NEWS & OBSERVER of Raleigh. The Bulls plan to return a questionnaire to the NAPBL, which is the "first step in the chase" for a Class AAA expansion team for the '98 season. Bulls GM Peter Anlyan: "We are sending back the questionnaire because we want to keep our options open. We haven't started sorting out the pros and cons. We just want to test the waters." If the request is granted, the Bulls stadium would have to be expanded from 9,033 seats to 10,000 to meet Class AAA standards. According to Anlyan, there is a provision in the Bulls' lease with the city to provide financial assistance in adding the seats if the team moves to a higher level (Bill Woodward, Raleigh NEWS & OBSERVER, 6/28).
