Take us out to the Doll game Paul Oberjuerge June 22, 2007 Excerpt: The Sixers did their Kevin Costner bobblehead giveaway on Saturday. We can't say it really looks like the Academy Award-winning actor/director. But it's a bobblehead, so it's automatically cool. The Costner bobble has No. 16 on its back because that's the number Costner wore when he played shortstop for San Bernardino in the memorable exhibition game vs. the Seattle Mariners at ACUP on March 28, 2002. Kostner wore No.8 in "Bull Durham" and No.14 in "For the Love of the Game."

History: Honorable mention goes to Kevin Costner who participated in an exhibition game versus the Seattle Mariners in March of 2002 as a member of the Stampede. Although Costner went 0-3 that day and committed an error as the starting short stop, the highlight of the game is when he was called to pitch in the ninth inning to Mariner's skipper, Lou Pinella, whom he walked.

In the spring of 2002, the Mariners arranged an exhibition game against their High-A counterparts. Inserted in the Stampede's lineup was actor Kevin Costner, who hadn't stepped on the set of a ballfield since his 1999 film For Love of the Game. The 47-year-old slotted in at shortstop and went 0-for-3 at the plate, accentuating his performance with a single error. More memorably, Costner was chosen to close out the 12-4 loss for the Stampede, where he faced off against Mariners' manager and pinch-hitter Lou Piniella. Piniella was sent scrambling on Costner's first pitch, which knocked him back into the dirt, but recovered in time to draw a walk.

The Statesman Interview: Augie Garrido By Ryan Autullo Posted February 12th, 2016 Excerpt: Who’s your coolest celebrity friend? I’m closest with Kevin Costner. We keep in touch frequently. I don’t know if he’s the coolest or the hippest, but I think we have the closest relationship on a day-to-day basis.
