    And after the show, he'll return to Mitch's Tavern to fight "Meat" again.

    What a great movie! Wouldn't be surprised if that film is directly responsible for the DBAP and downtown revitalization, as it is.

    Now when can we see Susan Sarandon?? Age has treated her much better than Crash.

    You are so right smitty, and the flood scene was filmed at our (Wilson's) very own Flemming Stadium. Can he come here too? :o)

    Wrong, Bull Durham was not filmed at the DBAP, it was filmed at the DAP.
