Bull Durham 20th Anniversary Celebrated in Press
June 2008 marks the 20th anniversary of the debut of the now-classic movie Bull Durham in theatres nationwide. Much of the film was shot at the old Durham Athletic Park in downtown and based on fictional Durham Bulls minor league player Crash Davis.
The movie, starring Kevin Costner, Tim Robbins & Susan Sarandon, made quite a splash, and is now being celebrated during its anniversary week. Check out these articles:
