A long awaited renovation and restoration of the old Durham Bulls Athletic Park is underway.

A groundbreaking ceremony took place Wednesday morning. It coincided with the 20th anniversary of the movie "Bull Durham."

The film is a romantic comedy with Durham baseball as a backdrop. City leaders also held a luncheon in honor of the film.

Durham Native and Bull Durham film producer Thom Mount attended the event.
