Answer: Bull Durham

Among other pieces of advice, Crash Davis tells his mentee "Never hit a drunk with your pitching hand." Even though he is mentoring Tim Robbins' Nuke LaLoosh, supposedly a much younger player, the age difference between Costner and Robbins is only three years.
4. Costner plays Billy Chapel, a pitcher who's seen better days. In this climactic scene, Billy makes this plea on the mound--"God, I always said I would never bother you about baseball. Lord knows you have bigger things to worry about. But if you could make this pain in my shoulder stop for ten minutes, I would really appreciate it." What is the movie?

Answer: For Love of the Game

Billy Chapel has lived a hard life as a major league pitcher, sacrificing love and any shot at a normal life for the love of baseball. This scene portrays the final time Billy will ever be on the mound. Chapel ends up throwing a perfect game, and for a moment, his life is perfect.

Answer: Dances with Wolves

"Dances with Wolves" is the story of a Civil War veteran who travels west only to come to know and be accepted by the Native American tribe that travels among the plains. Stands With A Fist is a white woman who has spent most her life living among the Sioux tribe.

Although English is her first language, she has trouble recalling it and its linguistic subtleties. This film won seven Academy Awards.
6. Flirting with his sports therapist, Costner's character is told, "You have your moments," to which his character, Roy McAvoy, replies, "Well, you tell me which moments are my moments and I'll try to duplicate them." What is this movie?

Answer: Tin Cup

Costner plays a miniature-golf manager who decides to take a shot at the PGA tour with the help of a sports psychologist played by Rene Russo, who has been dating the arch nemesis of Costner's character. What better way to win the heart of your ex-friend's girlfriend than to qualify for the US Open, which his character Roy "Tin Cup" McAvoy does.

In real life, Costner often participates in the PGA's Pro-Am golf tournaments, and is recognized as a quality player.

This film, written by Canadian WP Kinsella, tells the story of a baseball fan who receives messages from his cornfield to create a baseball diamond on his property, which turns out to be magical. "If you build it, he will come" applies to the appearance of his father in this film, which provides Ray Kinsella with an opportunity to ease his own pain.

This movie was filmed during a drought in Iowa, and so trucks of water had to be brought in to irrigate the grass so they'd have a lush, green baseball diamond.

When asked if her broken heart will ever heal, Costner says, "Yeah, it does. It heals. It just heals funny. You know, you more or less walk... with a limp." What is the movie?

Answer: The Upside of Anger

A former Big-League pitcher, now trading on his past, falls for an uptight neighbor who has four daughters and a husband who has recently abandoned them. Costner's character helps the woman unclench the fist in her soul, and she brings stability into his life.
10. This film is based around brothers who reconnect while training for a cycling race, The Hell of the West. When commenting on his younger brother David's choice in college majors, Eastern religion and cowboy movies, Costner's character's reply is, "Sounds like bull-shinto to me."

Costner plays Marcus Somers, the older brother to David Somers. The brothers have been estranged since the death of their father, and this film accounts for a time of reconnecting through bicycling. The fictional race in this movie is based on a real race called The Coors Classic, and in some shots during the film, you can see people wearing Coors Classic hats.
