Do you remember the 1988 comedy film “Bull Durham” starring Kevin Costner and Susan Sarandon? As the 25th anniversary of the film approaches, Dale Earnhardt Jr. has a keepsake from the movie featured prominently on his property outside Mooresville, N.C. Earnhardt doesn’t have jerseys and small memorabilia from the film. He has the actual team bus.
Earnhardt, only 14 years old when the movie was released, still ranks Bull Durham as a personal favorite 25 years later.
The film is the story of a fan who has an affair with one minor-league baseball player each season meets an up-and-coming pitcher and the experienced catcher assigned to him.
The Durham Bulls baseball team serves as the Triple-A minor league affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays.
