As Greensboro figures out what to do with War Memorial Stadium, Durham wonders what to do with Durham Athletic Park
"The city of Durham hopes to decide this year with to do with DAP. Will the city follow the path of Daytona Beach, FLa., which renovated the Jackie Robinson Ballpark and created an adjacent museum that focuses on athletes who broke barriers? Will it make the DAP a mulit-purpose facility that can accommodate celebrations of everything from baseball to beer? Or will it try something totally unexpected, such as the motocross competitions staged these days at a remodeled stadium in Anaheim, Calif.?"
