Born out of a unique collaboration in the fall of 2020, Bulls in the Ballpark is a two-night event that features the toughest bull riders facing off against the rowdiest bulls in PRCA Xtreme Bull Riding inside a rodeo arena built on top of the infield at Dell Diamond. Each night will also include the fan favorite Mutton Bustin' - young cowboys and cowgirls testing their skills and trying to hold on for eight seconds!

"One of the positives from 2020 was this unique partnership between the Round Rock Express and Rodeo Austin," Round Rock Express President Chris Almendarez said. "We put our heads together to figure out how we could combine our two organizations to provide rodeo fans in Central Texas with live entertainment while enhancing Rodeo Austin's mission to raise millions for Texas kids. We are honored to continue our partnership into 2021 with the second annual Bulls in the Ballpark!"

Both nights will showcase 35 top bull riders competing for $35,000. Gates are scheduled to open each night at 6:00 p.m. with the event beginning at 7:00 p.m. Rodeo Austin fans will once again 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.

"Last November, Rodeo Austin and the Round Rock Express found a way to safely bring a unique experience and some gritty fun to thousands of people with Bulls in the Ballpark. Our two organizations working together created a one-of-a-kind, live event in a world-class venue - Xtreme Bull Riding and Mutton Bustin' in a baseball stadium! It's the sort of thing that can happen when people come together to support Rodeo Austin's mission of growing the next generation of Texas kids," Rodeo Austin CEO Rob Golding said.
