Actor Kevin Costner has starred in three baseball themed movies: Bull Durham (as Crash Davis), Field of Dreams (as Ray Kinsella), and For Love of the Game. The first two are considered among the very best baseball movies ever made.
In 2002, Costner was invited to play in an exhibition game for the minor league Inland Empire 66ers of the California League. He started the game at shortstop and finished up by pitching an inning. On the mound, he faced Seattle Mariners manager Lou Piniella and ended up walking him.
He is part owner of the Lake County Fielders.
He was the special guest of Major League Baseball at the "Field of Dreams Game" in 2021, played in honor of the movie in which he starred, next tot the site where it was filmed.
