Colin Firth Visits DBAP

British actor Colin Firth (Bridget Jones Diary, Love Actually, Mama Mia) is in Durham filming the movie "Main Street" [click here for more info from]

We invited him to throw out a ceremonial first pitch, but he politely declined...didn't receive any baseball training in the UK. Still, Colin was interested in our National Pastime and joined us for the Durham Bulls/Columbus Clippers game on May 3rd.

We presented him with a Bulls' jersey. FIRTH is on the nameplate and 09 is his number. If he's inclined to wear it in London, maybe we will see a spike in our internet apparel sales from the UK?
