June 23, 2013

CLEVELAND (AP) — Kevin Costner, whose latest movie is being filmed in Cleveland, took batting practice at Progressive Field before Sunday’s baseball game between the Indians and Minnesota Twins.

Costner, wearing an Indians’ jersey and cap, hit several line drives as Cleveland players looked on. He also played catch in the outfield and took time to chat with several players and coaches.

While some of Costner’s best known films have had a baseball theme, his latest movie, “Draft Day,” is about professional football. He plays the general manager of the Cleveland Browns attempting to acquire the No. 1 pick in the National Football League draft. The movie began shooting in Cleveland last month and is scheduled to be released next year.

Costner’s baseball-related movies include “Field of Dreams,” ″Bull Durham,” and “For Love of the Game.”
