VIDEO: Kevin Costner takes BP at Indians Progressive Field, talks Tribe

  • David Whitlock

Kevin Costner has always been known as a baseball fan and advocate, with movies like Field of Dreams, Bull Durham, and For Love of the Game.  The Hollywood legend took an opportunity to take batting practice at the Cleveland Indians Progressive Field on Sunday, on a break for filming another sports movie in town.  Watch as Costner sends a few ropes to left field, defying his 58 years of age (courtesy MLB via YouTube):

He also talked about his ties to the Tribe and his confidence in the Erie Warriors overtaking the defending American League Champion Detroit Tigers (courtesy Cleveland.com)

Costner also stopped in the Fox Sports Ohio broadcast booth for more discussion.

The film for which he is in town, titled “Draft Day,” casts him as the owner of the Cleveland Browns and costars Jennifer Garner and Sam Elliott, scheduled for release in 2014.

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
