Durham Bulls Athletic Park, home to Tampa Bay’s Triple A affiliate team the Durham Bulls, will become the first Minor League Baseball facility to host an esports tournament when the inaugural DBAP Gaming Challenge occurs from Sept. 29 to Oct. 1.

ldquo;We’re extremely excited to host the inaugural DBAP Gaming Challenge,” Bulls General Manager Mike Birling said. “Esports is an industry that continues to grow at a rapid pace, and we’re looking forward to beginning the DGC and making it an annual event in Durham at our stadium.”

 The winners will win a cash prize with whoever comes in first place receiving $250, second place receiving $150 and third place walking away with $100. There is a total of $5,000 for winners across the tournaments. 

The event will also take advantage of the ballpark’s space, utilizing the PNC Triangle Club, party decks, dugout tops and the team’s Blue Monster video board, which measures 63 feet wide and 25 feet tall.
