In 1998, the Durham Bulls made the jump to the Triple-A level, becoming an affiliate of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. 20 seasons later, the partnership between the two teams still holds strong. In 2017, the Bulls will honor that relationship, donning specially-designed Bulls jerseys inspired by those worn by the Rays.
Inspired by the Rays' light blue alternates, Durham's newest uniform prominently features 'Bulls' in block lettering across the jersey's chest. Just as the Rays feature a sunburst in their 'R,' Durham will feature a sunburst in the 'B.'
