Highlights for Engineering
“Take Me Out to the Bulls” game is a half-hour WRAL Documentary that immerses viewers in the experience of visiting the Durham Bulls Athletic Park and watching America’s most famous minor league baseball team play a game.
Employing multiple cameras and even a drone over a four-game home stand, the documentary offers perspectives of the DBAP and a Bulls game that a typical fan in the stands would not see.
The documentary also goes behind the scenes to let viewers see the entire production that goes into creating the Bulls experience, from coordinating the on-field events between innings, putting replays and other images on the video boards and shooting off the fireworks. Viewers will get an exclusive look into the control room where those events are managed and even a peek into the Bulls locker room as players prepare for a game.
Throughout the program viewers will hear from members of the Bulls’ staff, including the head groundskeeper, PA announcer, manual scoreboard operator as well as the team’s manager, a star player and fans.
“Take Me Out to the Bulls Game” was originally produced in 4K, or Ultra High Definition, making it the first locally produced program in the country in that format.
Although the documentary was shot in 4K, this broadcast will be in normal high definition.

The construction project added 35,000 feet onto the south side of the existing studios
R.T. Dooley of Charlotte served as the general contractor for the project, and Envirotek of Raleigh was the architect. Devlin Design Group of San Diego designed the news set, and Rees Associates of Oklahoma City served as interior design contractor.
Before construction could began, WRAL had to dismantle its old 300-foot broadcast relay tower and build a new tower 150 feet northwest of the old location.
