DURHAM, N.C. â€” When does a Game One have a Game Seven vibe to it?
The answer: When youâ€™re participating in a single nine-inning affair that will determine the top Triple-A squad of 2012, which is whatâ€™s happening Tuesday night at Durham Bulls Athletic Park, site of the Triple-A National Championship Game between International League champion Pawtucket and the Reno Aces, the top team from the Pacific Coast League.

You also think of beautiful McCoy Stadium, a befitting monument to Mondorâ€™s tireless efforts to build a first-class, fan-friendly ballpark out of the rundown facility he inherited.

Now thereâ€™s something you can do to help: Just show up for a special planning workshop tomorrow night â€“ and bring your imagination.
