Yellowstone star Kevin Costner’s sprawling mansion in Aspen, Colorado includes its own Field of Dreams style baseball diamond.
As Showbiz Cheat Sheet reports, Costner’s 160-acre Aspen estate boasts a baseball field. But it’s not just any baseball field. Costner’s diamond comes complete with stadium lighting, an automated pitching machine, and a sound system.
The actor’s net worth is an estimated $250 million. He reportedly makes $500,000 per episode playing John Dutton on Paramount Network’s wildly popular series Yellowstone. Definitely worth the Colorado abode.
Kevin Costner’s Love of Baseball
It’s easy to see Costner’s affection for the game of baseball from his acting credits. He played Crash Davis in classic sports film Bull Durham. In arguably one of his most memorable big-screen roles, Costner starred as Ray Kinsella in Field of Dreams. Furthermore, he portrayed Billy Chapel in For the Love of the Game. He also lent his recognizable voice when agreeing to narrate Fastball, a documentary about fastballs in baseball that was released in 2016.
Even though he already has a number of baseball-themed films on his resumè, Costner has reportedly said that he’s not done with baseball movies.
“I think I have one more in me — it has to do with the Cubs,” he told Larry King in 2016. “I don’t know, I have to get it written.”
Kevin Costner has also played some baseball off the silver screen. According to Baseball Reference, he played in an exhibition game for the minor league team the Inland Empire 66ers. He began the game as a shortstop and wound up pitching an inning. He went up against Seattle Mariners manager Lou Piniella, who ultimately walked.
Costner was also part owner of the Lake County Fielders, a minor league (North American League) team based in Zion, Illinois that lasted until 2011.
