Duke University Softball pitcher Peyton St. George becomes the first brand ambassador for Minor League Baseball’s Durham Bulls.
St. George will help promote the Bulls in social media, and she’ll make appearances for the ball club over the course of the 2022 season.
In a released statement from the Bulls, St George says “Durham has been my home for the past 5 years and I am so thankful that NIL has given me many opportunities to be more involved in my community, especially now with the Bulls. As a student-athlete, using my platform to grow the games of softball and baseball means everything to me and I’m excited for what this season holds!”
St. George is the first player in Duke Softball program history to record more than 50 wins in her career, as well as 500 strikeouts. She enjoyed an historic 2021 season with Duke, setting single-season records for saves, innings pitched, complete games, shutouts and strikeouts to lead the Blue Devils to their first Atlantic Coast Conference Championship title in program history.
St. George has posted a 8-1 record and 1.87 ERA through 14 outings this year as a graduate student. She entered this week ranked in the top ten in three of the four major polls, marking the first time that has happened in program history.
The Bulls begin their Triple-A National Title defense on the road in Nashville on Tuesday, April 5 before returning to Durham Bulls Athletic Park for a five-game series versus the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp on Tuesday, April 12.
