Duke Baseball A-Z Gameday Guide (Jack Coombs Field)

Alcohol

It is strictly prohibited to bring alcohol into Jack Coombs Field. Individuals violating this policy are subject to ejection from the stadium.

ATM Machines

There are no ATM machines inside Jack Coombs Field. The BT&T ATM is located just outside the south entrance doors of Cameron Indoor Stadium (Wallace Wade Stadium side) and will be accessible 24-7. The ATM only dispenses cash ($20 increments) and does not take deposits.

Banners and Signs

Banners and Signs are permitted inside Jack Coombs Field, however Duke reserves the right to prohibit or require the cessation of any display of a banner or sign that obstructs the view of other fans, obscures stadium signage, can be considered an advertisement, or is determined to be obscene, vulgar, indecent, inappropriate, or derogatory.

Bull City Connector

The Bull City Connector is a fare-free, hybrid-electric bus service that connects downtown Durham with the Duke University campus. The route provides direct access to Duke and includes stops along Main Street and Erwin Road. The service also includes a stop at Durham Station, the city's transportation hub with public bus service and within walking distance of the American Tobacco Campus and the Durham Bulls Athletic Park. The Bull City Connector is also ideal for bicyclists, who can ride to a Connector stop and take their bike to campus by using a bike rack on the front of the bus.

The easiest way to get to games using the Bull City Connector is to get off at Duke Hospital South on Trent Road. Once you get off at Duke Hospital South, walk on the sidewalk down Flowers Drive. Cut up to the West Campus Quad. Walk all the way down the Quad until you reach Towerview Drive. Cross Towerview Drive and follow the sidewalk around Cameron. Walk up the hill towards Whitford Dr. Parking Lot and Jack Coombs Field will be on your right. Click here for a map to show you where to go.
