Durham hosts 2018 ACC baseball championship

DURHAM, NC (WTVD) -- The ACC and the City of Durham could have a banner week at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park.

Three of the top four teams are Triangle-based and have created more general interest than perhaps ever before.

Expect big crowds starting Wednesday night when North Carolina takes the field.

An impact study done a few years ago suggested a $4 million dollar bump to the Bull City economy, and if any local teams make it, the weekend it could be much greater.

The tournament is pool play, so each team is guaranteed two games. The winners of each pool advance to Saturday.
