Durham Athletic Park
From BR Bullpen
After more than two decades in the Carolina League, the Bulls merged with the nearby Raleigh club in 1968 and for four years split their home games between Durham Athletic Park and Raleigh's Devereaux Meadow before folding prior to the 1972 season. The park was vacant for several years before another Bulls club began play in the Carolina League in 1980. The Bulls called DAP home through the 1994 season, after which they moved to the new Durham Bulls Athletic Park.
Durham Athletic Park is famous to movie fans for being prominently featured in the film "Bull Durham", which starred Kevin Costner, Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins. Much of the movie was shot on location in Durham in the fall of 1987.
Though it no longer hosts pro baseball, Durham Athletic Park still stands and hosts amateur ball as well as various festivals and concerts.
