"Bulls in the Ballpark" Invades Dell Diamond this Weekend
ROUND ROCK, Texas - Dell Diamond has added a third bullpen! The infield has been transformed into a rodeo arena in advance of this weekend's inaugural "Bulls in the Ballpark," a brand new, two-night event featuring the toughest bull riders facing off against the rowdiest bulls in PRCA Xtreme Bull Riding. The Round Rock Express and Rodeo Austin are excited to partner to bring Bulls in the Ballpark to Dell Diamond on November 13 and 14.
Local media are invited to Dell Diamond in advance of this weekend's event to see Central Texas' newest rodeo grounds first-hand. Live bulls will be loaded into the arena on Friday evening prior to the start of the rodeo. For media credentials to cover the event, please click here.
Each night will also include fan favorite Mutton Bustin' - young cowboys and cowgirls testing their skills and trying to hold on for eight seconds! Both nights will showcase 35 top bull riders competing for $20,000. Gates are scheduled to open each night at 6:00 p.m. with the event beginning at 7:00 p.m. Tickets start at $20 and are available now via RRExpress.com.
Rodeo Austin fans will see and hear some familiar faces and voices at Bulls in the Ballpark. Wayne Brooks, award-winning announcer and long-time voice of Rodeo Austin, will be at the mic. Justin Rumford, Rodeo Austin's barrel man, will also be bringing his specialty acts to the performances.
Fans will have the opportunity to enjoy rodeo action at the ballpark in a safe and controlled environment. Dell Diamond will operate at a limited capacity to ensure guests have the space they need to remain socially distant. The seating bowl has been reconfigured to maintain social distancing between guests. Physical barriers are in place to enforce the restrictions in the seating bowl.
Per Texas Governor Greg Abbott's Executive Order on July 2, face coverings are required for individuals age 10 and older in public areas. Guests will be required to wear masks at Dell Diamond when entering, exiting and moving around the ballpark. Guests may remove masks when sitting in their ticketed seat. A clear bag policy will also be enforced to reduce the need for security to inspect the belongings of guests.
