Durham Bulls vs. Toledo Mud Hens 

When: Mon., May 10, 7:05 p.m. 2010

Baseball, more than any other sport, has done a marvelous job of marketing its own historical aura. From 11 a.m. games for schoolchildren to the vintage-uniform days to the league-wide retirement of Jackie Robinson's jersey number, professional baseball finds ways to celebrate its past. Accordingly, tonight's the night to see the Durham Bulls, for they're playing a one-off contest in the historic, recently restored Durham Athletic Park, the grounds that housed professional baseball in the Bull City from 1926 to 1994. General admission seating at normal prices is in effect for the 7:05 p.m. game.

While we're all for baseball celebrating its heritage, here's hoping that they really celebrate it by eschewing, for one night only, certain modern "improvements," so that we might have an evening without annoying walk-up music, inane injections of prompts to clap and, yes, sumo wrestling. Let's just let the kids race Wool E. Bull around the bases every inning and enjoy the old ball game. —David Fellerath
