Update: Congratulations to the Durham Bulls on defeating the Memphis Redbirds 5-3 Tuesday night at PNC Field, capturing the Triple-A National Championship title for the second time in franchise history.
Since 1980, Triangle Orthopaedics, now EmergeOrtho, has been Team Physicians for the Durham Bulls. The Triple-A affiliate team of the Tampa Bay Rays won fifth International League championship this year. EmergeOrtho physicians have seen them through each of the previous Governor’s Cup Championship seasons, in 2002, 2003, 2009, and 2013.
As the official Team Physicians, EmergeOrtho hosts three sponsor nights throughout the regular season at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park. Recently, EmergeOrtho pledged to be Major Sponsors of the Miracle League of the Triangle, along with Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina. The Miracle League program and field are created to enable children and adults with special needs to enjoy the game of baseball. The new facility will be across the street from the Durham Bulls Athletic Park.
“We are proud to partner with the Miracle League of the Triangle, in association with the Durham Bulls and Capitol Broadcasting, to build the new Miracle League facility with plans to be located across the street from Durham Bulls Athletic Park,” said Jim Carrier, Pharm.D., CEO of the Triangle Division of EmergeOrtho. “EmergeOrtho has continued the tradition of being partners with the communities we serve and feel a sponsorship of this tremendous program is a great cause that will bring joy to so many deserving kids.”
EmergeOrtho Sports Medicine physicians have been working with the Durham Bulls since the “Bull Durham” years, and look forward to the playoffs and the years to come!
